Saturday, July 4

Smore (Some more) news....

The cottage.

Bartholomew Lake greeted us with small waves...big hugs and lots of love.
Bags, boardgames, badminton, books, boating and baseball filled the scarcely sun lite day.


Nightfall arrived with bangs and booms. Pyrotechnic displays of celebration litter the sky, bouncing off the water and into my dreams as I lay my head down. Restless or jolted to an aware frame of mind, I found this.......

The Declaration of Independence

We hold these truths to be self-evident,
that all men are created equal,
that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights,
that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.



Happy 4th of July!



Additional words:
Celebrations then and now

I am apt to believe that it will be celebrated by succeeding generations as the great anniversary festival.
It ought to be commemorated as the day of deliverance, by solemn acts of devotion to God Almighty.
It ought to be solemnized with pomp and parade, with shows, games, sports, guns, bells, bonfires, and illuminations, from one end of this continent to the other, from this time forward for evermore.
— John Adams, letter to Abigail Adams, July 3, 1776 (referring to the day before, when the resolution for independence was passed)

Aww..smores! Who can resist? You know, they are usually a part of our 4th celebration and this year we didn't get around to them. So the other night I surprised the fam with a late night snack...smores. (Although, not so easy to feed your son smores and then send him to bed..;o)Oh well, that's what summer is fun is about.
