July 4th - Independence Day

Tomorrow is the celebration of our country's independence from England.  How do you celebrate?

Growing up, I don't recall too much.  We may have gone for a drive or we were camping.  More than likely we were working in the hay field.  Sometimes we had fireworks.

When I was in Rainbow Girls, we had a fireworks stand as a fundraiser.  I put in some hours when I was Worthy Advisor.

Our tradition now is the Tumwater Parade.  We started marching in it when Nathan was a Tiger Cub Scout in 1995.  Then when David joined the 
Tumwater American Legion Post 166, we were marching with them and the cannon.  This will be the second year in a row that I won't be there due to 

As Nathan was growing up, we spent the 4th with David's family - bbq meal and fireworks.  As communities ban fireworks and the cost is getting too much, we started going to Tumwater's Fireworks display.

Enjoy time with your family and friends and be safe with fireworks.

Happy Independence Day!
