Yankee Doodle...

...came to town,
riding on a pony.
we decided to stick around our own little town this 4th of July as well.
our time was spent swimming, BBQing, frog catching, dog sitting, dog walking, dog petting (can you tell my kids were thrilled to have an "extra" in our house for a couple of days?), neighboring, sparklering, fireworking, and resting.
resting in those moments in life where one has breathing room to be, 
to belong, 
to love and to be loved.

thankful to live in a country that allows us to freely do just this.
and so much more.
God bless America!
