Thank My Lucky Stars & Stripes

This week we went to the Mamaroneck Fireman's Parade with our boys.  This annual event is so much fun and of course involves trucks so we couldn't miss it!  I brought my camera with me to take some pictures and I wasn't planning on posting them but I couldn't help myself.  The joy and excitement the kids exuded was just so contagious!

On this Friday before Independence Day I reflect on everything I'm thankful for living in the United States.  There is so much going on in the world around us and sometimes we take for granted the opportunities, safety, and the life we live in this country.

We met a veteran on the street at the parade.  He reminded me of my grandfather, a WWII vet.  Meeting him reminded me that it was he and many other men and women who have kept us and still keep us safe home and abroad.  I thank him for helping me remember.

I hope you and your loved ones have a Happy 4th of July weekend!

Happy Birthday America!!!
