And The Rockets Red Glare...

I hope everyone has a festive and fun Fourth of July!

Myself? I live in the town that boasts The World's Oldest Rodeo...and we celebrate like a real old western town...with a lot of root-n-tootn parades, craft fairs, fireworks, and street dancing. We also happen to have a Boot Race right in the middle of historic Whiskey Row...which is a hop skip and a jump away from Snap Snap.

I will be attending both the kiddie parade (which makes me cry my eyes out, and I'm not even related to anyone in it...it's just the pure joy that small kids that show on their faces when they dress up and people wave at them) and the big parade (which only makes me cry because of the amount of horses and car clubs in it) the boot race (which makes me cry because I'm usually laughing so hard) and I'll probably catch the fireworks somewhere before going home to bake a gross of rice crispy treats for a bar-b-q and reunion of sorts on Sunday.

I'll try to capture something on film...

I'm so jealous of the mantle...one day, we'll have a home with a mantle. Both Hubby & I love fireplaces, but with all the moving and downsizing, a home of our own is just wishful thinking right now. So I will content myself with looking at your mantel and home. So be sure to show me lots more pictures!! :0)
