Independence Day Celebration ~ The Parade

Hometown love for America...
A few words that popped into my head as we watched the parade
Jamie and family
 



God bless America,
Land that I love.
Stand beside her, and guide her
Through the night with a light from above.
From the mountains, to the prairies,
To the oceans, white with foam
God bless America, My home sweet home
God bless America, My home sweet home.

Your pictures are great. Chatting with a colleague yesterday about fireworks celebrations and remembering going to the local fireworks with my parents when I was growing up. Happy memories!

I always enjoy your family get-together pictures. You are blessed with a beautiful, loving family and I enjoy seeing the memories you are creating with the little ones. Your photos also bring back childhood memories for me. Blessings to you all!

I loved the word collage, what a neat idea to do with events and happenings in our lives.

I also love the ending to your post, I feel the same way....

Beautiful family, Lorraine. I don't think you have a bad hair day; you always looks great.

Our neighborhood has a parade on the 4th. It's always an exciting time ... and loud, yes. No sleeping in. The fire trucks wake you up with all the honking going on. :)

Happy 4th weekend!

Just a little something from Judy said...

The smiles on the face of your family reveal joy and happiness in their hearts. You bring a sense of realness to the July 4th holiday by your beautiful, inspiring pictures. I enjoyed reading the words again, to "God Bless America".
