What's your fondest memory of a Fourth of July? Win a free book! Roxanne Rustand

Happy Fourth of July!  The firecrackers have been booming in our rural area for several nights, so our fifteen-month-old golden retriever has been cowering once dusk falls.  

I love the festivities of this holiday and the chance to be with family and friends, but for Doogan's sake, I'll be relieved when he can finally relax and not be so scared about going outside to potty.

Family and friends...such a joy!  Have you been able to get together with someone this weekend?

Some of the birthdays in our family have managed to coordinate with one holiday or another, which makes those holidays even more special---and convenient.  😄   

My husband and I both have birthdays within a few days of the Fourth of July, so we can usually be with at least some of our kids and grands.  And all three of our kids plus the two newest grandbabies have birthdays close to Christmas. 

Our son Brian's is actually on Christmas Eve, which he loves because then he'll always be with family on his birthday.  And, one daughter-in-law was born on Halloween.

So beyond the usual celebration of various holidays---and of course the true meaning of Christmas--we have lots of good memories of being with family at those times. 

One special memory of the Fourth of July was when our older son and his family lived on a vast reservoir north of Dallas. We spent the evening until midnight out on his boat, watching endless fireworks sparkling in the sky in every direction. So beautiful!

Do you have a fond memory of a holiday that you'd like to share?
