My little granddaughter, here for the Fourth
all dressed up in her American dress (her word :)
The whole family was together...a harder and harder thing to accomplish it seems
We truly had an American celebration
first...a thankfulness for this day of our country's birth
remembering the men who pledge
their lives, their fortunes, and their sacred honor
Then we had a good old fashioned barbeque
-and slip and slide and watermelon
-corn on the cob dripping with butter
and then late in the evening...a wonderful fireworks display at our local park
Me...I stood in the shadow
watching them all...grateful so grateful..for all this love in my life

  US liberty
a gift we are grateful for
The Fourth of July


  1. lovely patriotic dress she has there...hope you had a great independence day...

    and thank you.


  2. What a charming little one! Yes, I felt the same. Tired from all that commotion, but still in great spirits and most grateful to have family around.

  3. She's a cutie. I'm glad you had a good time :)

  4. Sounds like you all had a great time. Your grand-daughter is beautiful.

  5. precious...

    your grand-daughter AND our liberty.


  6. What a beautiful girl she is...what a gift for you to get together...Our family is spread apart and I appreciate every moment we can have together...thanks for stopping by Suz!

  7. She's adorable. It is wonderful that you were with your family for the holiday. As you say, it is becoming more difficult for many of us in our mobile society to gather together with family and friends. Seems many traditions are getting lost along the way. And, I also am grateful to our ancestor's vision, determination, and victory in providing liberty.

  8. Beautiful child. And you are truly blessed!

  9. Wonderful images and what a cutie!

  10. Sweet little child in her beautiful dress.
    I envy you being with your family. I wish mine was closer. It's so hard to get everyone together.
