Happy Birthday America....

From Hometown, USA










Independence Day is a Big Deal in my little hometown.  We have the biggest parade in the area with lots of flags and military vets; horses, kids, and queens; floats, Model T's and Tractors, firetrucks and fire hoses.  We even had the local Cowboy Marching Band, Wyoming Drums & Bagpipes, and  Trash Can Drummers.  There will be three days of rodeos, singing in the park, and a carnival that's set up Downtown. The parade started with sunshine and then there was a downpour at the end of it.  Umbrellas popped up and people kept watching as long as the parade kept coming down the street.  The sun broke through and we had a warm afternoon barbequing with family and friends and fireworks topped it all off at dusk.  It was one glorious 4th of July day when we salute our Vets and Troops, and all who love Freedom give thanks and celebrate America.  I hope you had a spectacular Day.

  1. We had a great Fourth. Did you get a little rain in the morning? I hope it didn't miss you. I love the Dairy entry with the little pony. Great photos.
