Happy Fourth of July

July 4th Holidays were very special when I was a kid. They were about...lady fingers, cherry bombs, M-80s, sparklers, sky rockets, and this sort of thing, grilled hamburgers, hot dogs, macaroni and potato salad, baked beans, brownies, cupcakes, Mom, Dad, Diana, Doug, grandmothers, aunts, uncles, cousins, and best friends, hot summer nights chasing lightning bugs, getting buzzed on cool aid, having so much fun and getting so dirty I had to take two baths in a day, and being so tired at the end of the day I wanted to cry, and wishing that single day would last forever.
