"The second day of July, 1776, will be the most memorable epoch in the history of America. I am apt to believe that it will be celebrated by succeeding generations as the great anniversary festival. It ought to be commemorated as the day of deliverance, by solemn acts of devotion to God Almighty. It ought to be solemnized with pomp and parade, with shows, games, sports, guns, bells, bonfires, and illuminations, from one end of this continent to the other, from this time forward forever more."
And we all did as John predicted =)
The precious Claudski
Zander and I getting lots of sun.
Danny lives right by the Biltmore hotel that puts on a big fireworks show every year. So I gathered the troops and headed that way. It was packed. I really dislike packed events unless its a concert....but I suck it up for a bit and we enjoyed a good but of the show. Once I threw in the towel we headed off with fireworks booming behind us. As it always perfectly does in Miami, it began to rain...causing an almost stampede type of rush from people. Traffic was going to be a nightmare if we didnt get to the car fast enough. So Karly and I made the boys run!!
We had a very safe day, I was designated driver and got my troops home in one piece. It is a great feeling when you can have such an enjoyable day without the worry of how you are getting home =)
