The way we celebrate the 4th of July feels like a snapshot of what America should be.

My sister, husband and brother-in-law playing catch in the street while Amy stands by drinking water. Diana and her new friend (our neighbor) were doing cartwheels to my left.

It was over 100 degrees for much of the day but that didn't stop our entire family (12 of us) from sitting in the driveway watching the kids play and enjoying time together.
White chocolate covered oreos with red and blue sprinkles. Quite a success!
Finally, Amy get to experience fireworks. Her thoughts? "Okay, I like fireworks."
