Hooray America!

I love America & I also love that Jeremiah got to take off a day in the middle of the week! But really, I love America! I loved going to a few Angels games when we lived in SoCal. Even though baseball isn't the most exciting spectator sport, there's something that is just so completely All-American about sitting in the stands at a baseball game, rooting for your team, singing ball-game songs with your fellow Americans, and eating hot dogs & popcorn!

In the American spirit we barbequed on the Fourth. Our baby back ribs were delicious! Callie didn't take a nap that day, but it turns out she needed one, and since she & Jackson don't know exactly what fireworks are, we did sparklers in our backyard around 7 & then put them to bed.

It was nice to sit out on our lawn with Jeremiah and a half pint of Haagen-dazs to watch the celebratory fireworks. We were too lazy to get up & turn on our radio (since the local stations play patriotic music to go along with the show), but we could catch some strains of the songs from someone else's radio a few blocks away. I started kind of jokingly singing the Star-Spangled Banner when the finale started but when Jeremiah joined in we finished it together nicely. I felt extremely proud to be an American. I'm thankful for the happy little life I lead & that there are brave, giving men & women throughout our wonderful country who have given & continue to give service to protect the freedoms that I enjoy every minute! Thanks Reed Mikkelsen (& Liz for supporting him), Grandpas Divis & McCombs (and the Grandmas) & all the other people who have made and are making it possible to live my great life. Hooray America!
