Happy Birthday America!

     Happy 4th of July everyone!  I hope everyone had great holiday weekend!  This weekend was busy for us here.  Every summer one of my best friends and all his siblings as well.  Yesterday we did most of our celebrating.  We went to his cottage and just hung out and relaxed.  The cottage is on a bay and its really beautiful.  Everyone had such a great time really just a day to have fun with family and eat and drink.  You couldn't ask for a nicer day.  The sun was out and the weather was just perfect.

     We spend the day just talking and laughing, Jim and Paul my two best friends were there with their amazing wives Megan and Amanda.  The six of us just get along so well, Jim, Paul and I have been best friends since birth but when our now wives met they all just clicked it really is awesome.  So the day was just one for the books.  That night we had a fire and then saw the fireworks.  Cottages all around the bay lit off fireworks as we sat and watched.  It was so much fun, funny to see how we grown and we have kids now growing up.

     The next day we picked up Quinn per it was our year to have her on the 4th.  We went home and did some prep work per we had friends over.  Some family and friends came over and we did some burgers and dogs on the grill your classic 4th of July foods.  We hung out and talked after then cleaned up.  We spend some time with Quinn and her Mom came to get her which was nice so we didn't have leave early to get her home.

     After we headed over to say goodbye to Jim and Meg and his siblings.  They are all going back to their homes this week.  We spent some time just talking a bit and then we headed home.  We were tired and still a bit sunburned from yesterday.

     It really was just an awesome weekend and a busy one.  With a nice short week and a busy weekend to come the busy month of July rolls on!

  Today is not just about food and being in the sun its about freedom and how many before us fought for freedom and to do what's right.  They stood up to others to start our country and put everything they had into it I hope everyone had a great weekend and 4th of July!  Always remember what this day is so important because it represents our freedom and many gave their lives for us to give us this amazing country so to you America we say happy 240th birthday.  You look great...

Always Remember,

You are Never Alone...
