Happy Independence Day Giveaway!!

Wow, love patriotic days! What will I be doing? We are going to be in our boat today, on the bay of beautiful historic Fort Monroe where they have the best fireworks I've ever seen, it will be a blast, hopefully!

In this picture, Natalie and Claire last year, wearing these adorable outfits my dear friend Pat from IwattedToWonder made, I bet she has cuter outfits this year but with the move I wasn't able to shop around much, check them out they have the cutest things for your little darlings.

Here's a little more about the 4th of July I found on Wikepedia, very interesting stuff:

"In the United States, Independence Day, commonly known as the Fourth of July, is a federal holiday commemorating the adoption of the Declaration of Independence on July 4, 1776, declaring independence from the Kingdom of Great Britain. Congress approved the wording of the Declaration on July 4 and then sent it to the printer. Whether John Hancock, as the elected President of the Second Continental Congress, or anyone else signed the document that day is unknown, because that document has been lost — presumably destroyed in the printing process.[1] Hancock's name and that of a witness do appear on the typeset broadside that was published within a few days. On August 2 in the following month, an engrossed document in script form[2] was signed by Hancock and other delegates.

Independence Day is commonly associated with fireworks, parades, barbecues, carnivals, picnics, baseball games, and various other public and private events celebrating the history, government, and traditions of the United States, but is often also viewed as simply a summer festival, apart from its patriotic overtones."

As I always ask, if you pray, please don't forget to pray for those overseas in the line of fire, and those who they leave behind.
