it's the 4th of july....


i'm ready for a long summer night...listening to music and playing with sparklers....


watching the people of my small town gather for what will be an amazing fireworks show....children chasing the last of the fireflies and smells from the grills....the 4th is an amazing time in our small town where everyone comes to gather, watches the small parade (where anybody can join), people come with their dogs, their families and eat ice cream cones as they watch the parade go by....children scamper for the candy that is thrown from the cars and are amazed still at the fire engine blaring it's siren...


it's a magical time that the town spreads out over nearly a week...several nights of firework shows...two parades and cookouts galore.....
