Military Monday Linky – July 11 – Americana Edition

Hope everyone had a wonderful Fourth of July weekend, celebrating America’s Birthday. Welcome to the July 11 linky!

Right now, I feel just like a slice of apple pie. We enjoyed a weekend out on the North Fork of Long Island with family. My mother-in-law, bless her energy, led the kids in a Fourth of July parade around the neighborhood. The kids rode their trikes and climbed trees and chased fireflies. We held an election and voted for our favorite ice cream flavor. We had a barbecue, finished off with S’mores, and followed by fireworks.

We watched the Fourth of July parade.

We played mini golf. My husband took the two older kids to the beach.

Then, this past weekend, my daughter had her dance recital.

So, it has been a week and a half of wholesome family fun!
