America the Beautiful - Battle Hymn of the Republic - God Bless America

tiny flag heartIn the United States of America, we celebrate the 4th of July to commemorate the signing of the Declaration of Independence on July 4, 1776! We were free from the rule and tyranny of Britain at last.  4th of July is cause for much celebration with parades and fireworks topping the list for most people. Sometimes, we can go see two sets of fireworks if the displays are on the right nights! That is fun!

God Bless America!

tiny flag heartMy city has a unique ritual after the parade. Many different organizations make cardboard boats. They have to race each other around a course set out in the water. They have many different heats, but finally come up with a winner. What usually happens is that your boat starts taking on water and you fall into the river. Some of the boats are amazingly watertight, though! It can be very funny watching the people trying to paddle their awkward cardboard boats, though! 

God Bless America!

tiny flag heartMy youngest daughter's favorite part of the day is seeing the different dog clubs in the parade. One of the groups always marches the parade with her Chihuahuas! They are Emily's favorite dog!
