Across the United States today, Americans will celebrate the 238th anniversary of their country's independence from Britain with parades, picnics, fireworks, rodeos and concerts.
Growing up my family went to Panama City Beach Florida every 4th of July week. Daddy worked at West Point Pepperell and the mill closed two weeks out of the year...Christmas and 4th of July. So we went to the beach. Some of my fondest memories are with my family at the beach.
These days it just costs too much to spend 4 th of July week at the beach. For me that is. Clearly not so for many. The crowds at the beach make travel nearly impossible. So we plan to go the beach the end of July when some of the beach goers stay home. We love the beach. Only about an hour drive on normal summer days.
The beach is good for the soul. It is especially good for Kallie. Salt water, sand and plenty of sunshine wash away some of the discomfort of Ichthyosis. A win win situation for Kallie. Can't wait for our beach trip. Making memories at Camp Gane.
Today Ryan will be serving up some yummy treats at his house. Very exciting!
How will you celebrate 4th of July? Be patriotic and eat plenty of good food, laugh and enjoy with family and friends. Be safe. Go make some memories where ever you are today. Today is God's gift to you. Enjoy "One Nation under God" today.
