Happy Birthday America

Hooray for the Red White and Blue!
I love what America stands for, I love our constitution that protects our rights, I love it when Americans stand up for freedom and stand with countries that also stand up for human rights!

Our country was built on immigrants, freedom of religion, the right to do one's very best in life.

May we all  remember the people who fought to create a safe place for Democracy and citizen's rights to speak their minds. It's our right and privilege to let leaders know when we disagree with them, in order to maintain the values we hold true.

This morning we attended a neighborhood party, a bike parade led by the local fire fighter's. It was a safe place to gather, meet and chat with people we live near, for kids and dogs to play. Want to see some pictures of the day?
meeting neighbors

The firemen sprayed the kids with the big hoses
there were bouncy houses and games like sack races and water balloon toss
There were colorful bikes
tiny bikes
tiny dogs
from great Danes to boston terriers
Scaredy dogs...
chewing up a bottle helps a poodle calm down
and dogs to become friends with...
How cute is this corgi? Also a year old
All in all, a good way to celebrate the morning of the Fourth, with everyone smiling and getting along with each other. No matter your "species" !
