Proud to be an American

Happy 4th of July everyone.
It's been a good one.
An interesting one...
but nonetheless, a good one. 
We did have matching shirts. 
But we didn't go to the balloons this year.
We did get up and go to the parade.
But we weren't planning on it. 
We didn't go swimming with my cousins. 
But we did have a BBQ with them.
I didn't do any fireworks. 
But I did sit on the deck with dad and watch the rest of the world do fireworks.

And I learned two things.

Number one:
Riding on the back of a motorcycle? Awesome.
Riding on the back of a motorcycle on the freeway in the wind and the rain? Not so awesome.

Number two:
My family knows me best. 
Even if they don't realize it.

Enjoy your freedom. 
People fought so we could.
