July 4th is probably my favorite holiday. Red, white and blue, the American flag and picnics make me so happy. We ventured up to the mountains this year for the annual parade/BBQ. Later that evening we went to the Blowing Rock Golf Course to sit on the green and watch the fireworks. It is such a beautiful setting and the fireworks are so close. It was our first year tear-free watching fireworks. Both kids ran on the green and played until the show began. Another wonderful 4th of July for the books! God Bless America!
