Happy Birthday America!

Lady Liberty would have been very proud to hear the rousing rendition of Happy Birthday America that was sang yesterday morning at our house.  We were all pretty excited for the 4th, as the fireworks on Calibogie Sound were only a couple hundred yards from our back porch. 

Addis got into the spirit with her festive red, white, and blue dress.

Most of the family made the short jaunt over to the 18th tee at Harbour Town for what proved to be the best seat in the house.  Here is the tee marker to prove it.

And the view down the iconic hole...

The kids passed the time before the fireworks show by kicking a soccer ball and building what they called sandcastles in the bunker adjacent to the 17th green.

The folks that made this trip a reality, my Mom and Dad looking on as their kids and grand kids enjoy the evening. 

Speaking of the kids, here are a few of them looking on in amazement as the fireworks lit up the sky.

And last but not least, fireworks pictures wouldn't be complete without a shot of Lleyton assuming the identical position I used to while looking on during Independence Day festivities.


  1. Welcome home (well at least state side) and CONGRATS! She is beautiful and her hair will grow back. :)

  2. So happy for you all to finally be together! Addis is beautiful, and I love seeing her big brothers love on her! Blessings on you all, and congrats again!
