Happy Birthday America!

I wanted to share just a few pictures of how we spend our 4th of July. We really don't do a lot of celebrating. It's really a low key sort of day for us but we end it with going to watch the fireworks that the Big Butler Fair puts off. We actually have never been to the fair. We watch the fireworks from a field that is quite a distance behind the fair. We park along side a country road with dozens of other firework seekers. We take a blanket, lawn chairs and drinks and wait for show. I don't know who owns the field that we all sit in but whoever it is, thank you for being so kind to allow us to enjoy this family tradition. This was our sixth year. The first time we went there I was 12 days away from giving birth to Allison. Allison loves to hear the story of how she was in my belly the first year and now she runs around in the field catching fireflies before the fireworks. Did you know that the firefly is the state insect of Pennsylvania? Well, there's a little bit of trivia for you!

Have Fun! Pin It
