As kids growing up, summertime began on Memorial day when school let out. Now I think of the 4th of July as the true summer. I am sure hoping we have some summer days ...and I am not talking about high temperatures....we had that along with the rain in June. Our June, which is usually the sweetest month was actually a rough one.
The top photo was from last July. I did not decorate for the 4th this year...other than flags outside. This cute picture is from the Horton's store last summer. I think someone bought that cute truck, as I have not seem it in any of the displays.
This 4th will be our family's first without our brother Mark. He always made mommy's potato salad. He could make as near to the way she did. Mom did take some pride in how everyone loved it.:):)
I know that many of you will be without loved ones also. Sending hugs to all of you. Let us keep a happy thought for those that are no longer with our families. May God bless us and keep us safe. XO
