Our Independance celebration...

Today is a special day. 
Ever since I was a little girl, the fourth of July has been a special day.  We celebrate our country's freedom at the same location every year.  We take up the same space at the same park and listen to the same orchestra playing the same music..we eat a bucket of KFC {NOT the same bucket, silly} while we wait for the fireworks to start...and we sing the same song.

It goes a little like the one playing in the background right now.

And we do it all for her...
...cause she's the same woman who has taken care of us and loved us all those years. 
I wish now that we had taken a picture of her every year- sitting on our favorite hill surrounded by our family.  If I had them, I would have posted every one of them here..I'm pretty sure she'll thank me later for not doing that. 
Happy Birthday, Mom...we never tire of celebrating you on the Fourth of July...and we can't wait to do it again today....same time, same place, same everything!
