I'm pretty sure the fourth is one of my favorite holidays. Although it will look a whole lot different this year, our family tradition will remain the same.
Every year, Dustin's (my hubby) dad mows his pasture into a baseball diamond and we have a big family baseball game the night of the third. To be honest, Logan cancelling their fireworks wasn't the end of the world to me because we make the drive up for the game.
When the fireworks are happening, the kids are running amuck through the yard and we are typically catching up with family that we don't get to see as often as we used to.
This is one holiday that will be written in the history book of our family and each year's game of baseball will be documented in an album that we can pass down through generations.
I sure hope that as we get older, the tradition will live on through us and our grandkids well beyond our years.
I will always remember seeing the smile on Grandpa's face as he pitches the ball and the cousins scattered through the field waiting for their turn to catch. This is why this holiday brings so much joy to my heart.
Celebrating America with the people that mean the most in our lives is what I am so grateful for in this life as well as the ability to document it all.
There may not be parades or big celebrations this year, but the game will still go on and we cannot wait to be a part of it once again.
I hope you all have a wonderful holiday with family and friends this year. Thank you so much for being here. Happy Birthday America! We sure love being a part of the celebration.
