I'm one of those not too happy with what's going on this dear country I love, but I will not be one who loses hope or talks badly about our country. I am very disappointed with our leadership, especially those I actually voted in. There are many still trying to make a difference. I love hope and will not give it up.
I have DNA from some pretty amazing heroes of this country, mostly unknown on a large scale, but heroes who fought, worked and made America great. That doesn't go away when She is being attacked and wounded because we won't let the Dream die.
So instead of being a depressed and frustrated, we have jumped into the Independence Day celebrating in advance and in full force.
We attended a Freedom Festival tonight with fun patriotic activities for all, and some just for fun activities. We have fun activities planned every weekend this month.
They thought they wanted to do the bubble ride,...
Step in this plastic, water tight bag, and plug your ears because they will blow it up with a garden blower, then toss you into a pool.
Fortunately the big bubble ride closed early, so they enjoyed all the slides instead.
Which was fortunate because they had the idea I was going to let them go up in a helicopter for a ride.
I found ways to distract them.
Live music always helps.
We have a large stockpile of sparklers and they enjoy them most evenings leading up to our grand finale July 4th firework extravaganza tomorrow.
I hope your 4th is full of reasons to celebrate America.
