Happy Independence Day!

Happy Fourth of July!

This marks the freedom of summer for me.
My obligations, which have been many, have been met.
Now I get to work on my own projects
go on bike rides
pick berries
play tennis
research the family tree (a fav!)
watch movies
and, maybe, just maybe, blog.

I know I have been missing in action big time!  It has been a busy spring with work and volunteering and special events and visitors.  We have just returned from yet another (gasp!) family vacation to see The Mouse.  The last trip to Anaheim was five years ago and that is a long, long story in itself.
This time everything was, weather, lines, transportation, accommodations.

While our local fireworks cannot compare to the Disneyland displays,
the family atmosphere and "small" town feel create community.

Here's wishing you an old-fashioned 4th!
While ours won't include the homemade peach ice cream and swimming of my childhood,
we are sure to make memories that the Offspring can recall.

Have a great day!
