Red, White and Bling

I hope everyone enjoyed celebrating their Independence this weekend!  Ours was the most unstructured Fourth of July yet.  We made no plans, and wanted it that way this year.  We watched the cul-de-sac kids light off fireworks Saturday night until we got shutdown by a grumpy neighbor at 10:00..."the Fourth isn't until tomorrow". 
Sunday, we went to church (Freedom with a Purpose message), met friends in Kirkland for a parade and breakfast, Target, back home to nap, watched a movie, ate dinner, then walked to a friends' house in our neighborhood for s'mores and "360 [degree]fireworks"...our neighborhood is AMAZING on the Fourth of July especially!!!

"This flag, which we honor and under which we serve, is the emblem of our unity, our power, our thought and purpose as a nation. It has no other character than that which we give it from generation to generation. The choices are ours. It floats in majestic silence above the hosts that execute those choices, whether in peace or in war. And yet, though silent, it speaks to us — speaks to us of the past, or the men and women who went before us, and of the records they wrote upon it."
- President Woodrow Wilson, 1917
