Happy 3rd of July!


Our little village, small town USA is celebrating the 4th today on the 3rd! 
Why you ask.....
It actually makes sense..
This way everyone can stay up late and enjoy the parade, BBQ's, Fireworks...etc..
Everyone is off tomorrow on the 4th....
because it's a holiday and the rest of the USA will be celebrating 
THE 4TH of July! 
but the difference is everyone else will show up to work on Thursday...
really tired....not people in my tiny town....
they will be well rested and recovered 
because we moved the holiday up! 

 These pictures are from last July 4th....we went to visit a childhood friend in WNY for a family reunion. It was another small town about an hour and half away....best small town parade and fireworks I've been to in years.
 Look at the braid work on this horse...pretty amazing! 
 One of my favorite pictures...
Me and my friend Sheri on Lake Chautauqua
We've been friends since 5th grade...
love this girl.

Happy 4th 3rd of July!!

We celebrate the 3rd too. Unfortunately we will celebrate without fireworks. It has been so hot and the grass is very try. Better safe than sorry. Where the fireworks would go off is across the lake from us and the wetlands connect from there to across the street from me. Have a nice time. xo
Ps oops I just realize I owe you a email. I will! :)

That makes GREAT sense to have everything on the 3rd!

LOVE the braids on the horse.

Happy 3rd!

A few of the places around here are moving celebrations to the weekend. But I think your town's idea makes more sense. HAPPY 3rd and 4th. ENJOY.

Happy July 3!! Looks like you will have fun as long as it is not too hot!

We are just going to relax on the 4th, actually Ron is going to play golf and I will play with the doggies and probably catch up on blogs and read. I wish we had an entire weekend....

Love the pictures from last July AND great header! LOVE that heart shaped strawberry!! xoxo

This is what happens when you don't work : ) Now I understand why so many towns are celebrating on the 3rd!

Our town celebrates the 4th on the 3rd too. Fireworks are tonight. Thank you for stopping by my blog. Your comments always make my day. I appreciate your kind words about my garden and the storm. It came through OK...a lot of clean up but it's looking normal again. Happy 4th!

Celebrating today makes a heck of a lot of sense. Love the parade photos and the one of that little girl waving the flag....too much.
