I don't know about you, but Independence Day is one of the BEST days of the year around here. Being an American is truly one of life's miraculous blessings - by an accident of birth, I am a citizen of the greatest nation on Earth, with the freedom to pursue life, liberty and happiness to the utmost of my abilities.
I happen to find the greatest joys of Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness in the presence of my friends and family - and we maxed out on taking advantage of our blessings this past weekend. I didn't manage to capture everything we did, but you can get the idea from this compilation. It was a busy, joyful, exhausting, wonderful summer weekend as we celebrated on the 4th of July.
