These are in reverse order of the day, as it is getting dark here with the finale of fireworks!! My son, Scott, wife Carrie, and Peyton above and then Carrie's sister and husband, Janel and Dave, and boys, Preston and Andrew below....it was great to have you all!! Nana and Papa below....come back!!!.....the other Grandparents! Kids are never bored at this age!! Buckey the Longhorn will be retiring this year...we'll miss him at our house!! Thanks Bobby and Bonnie for the years of bringing him to park in the yard!! Are any young ones being trained for his position? The famous Round Top Brass Band! Cowboys and..... Cowgirls riding with true colors.... Transportation way back then...... ....and now.....Even this big truck, beautiful, got in the parade! Just like the bears and the banner say..."God Bless America" From tractors to hot rods... to politicians campaigning....that is a great freedom!! Go ABE. Hey!!....we are behaving and having fun....I promise! No need for CSI to investigate that here! YUMMMM..... All the grand kids piled on with Grand dad.... My hero....my sweetie! Children are our cherished heritage....everyone of them!! All of them!!! Each and everyone!!! Happy fourth....and happy retirement BUCKEY!! Here are some pictures of our 4th of July Parade passing in front of our house..... a yearly tradition in our town with family and cherished friends. Who DOESN'T seek "to be FREE?" Even, "we" who live in a free country "seek freedom" in many different ways. Above are evidences of what kinds of freedom we already have in this blessed Nation. I hope you will reflect and cherish the freedom we have had from the beginning that was also paid for by our veterans and others.....they especially understand what "freedom" is and to be cherished....some giving their lives for us to stay free. THEN there is another cherished freedom.....not only can you obtain it in the USA, but anywhere your heart is open to receiving it and it's eternal blessing! Many in foreign nations have it but don't have the "freedom" to live it or to share it or even talk about it without being persecuted!! Here is not only a cherished freedom like we still have in our Nation that so many seek, but the Freedom that goes beyond life itself! TRUE FREEDOM..... "...if the Son makes you free, you shall be free indeed." John 8:32,36 Blessings!
