HAPPY BIRTHDAY AMERICA!

I know this is a bit late, but here are some photos taken at the 4th of July parade in a small town in south Georgia. Our dear friends, George and Charlene, live here and the parade has always started in front of their house. We had a wonderful day! We sat on the front porch, visited with friends and relatives and just enjoyed all the activities. Most of the people in the parade threw candy to all the people standing along the street. It was so much fun!

The log cutting contest.










Every parade has a fire truck







Then there were the sack rack.






After the parade there were activities around the courthouse square. The weather was perfect! It was warm, but the humidity was low, which is EXTREMELY unusual for Georgia on the 4th of July and as you can see from the photos blue sky with light fluffy clouds.
In 1776 when the colonies declared independence from England, John Adams said every 4th of July all the towns should have a great celebration with parades, games and fireworks. My prayer for these great United States is we will be able to celebrate another 231 years of independence and freedom. We honor all the people that have fought so hard, even died, to give us that freedom today. GOD BLESS THE USA!
