While enjoying the family BBQs please be safe – remember to keep the kids away from the open flames. Dont let the tweens play with fireworks. On the family memories note – dress the kids up in red, white and blue and capture memories.  In the end you’ll never have them at this age again and it is a special day that we all celebrate the great history of our country.

ps. the picture here is of my sister and myself circa 1980’s – sorry Heather had to post it 🙂
