Independence Day Memories

Posted 07-04-2012 at 08:26 PM by xmas365 (Christmas, Life, and Family)

July 4, it may not be a favorite of holidays of a lot of people, but for me it is #3 behind Christmas and Thanksgiving. It is the holiday of the summer, and for me it has always struck the right chord going all the way back to my youth. It has always been one of the biggest family holidays for us just like Christmas, Thanksgiving, and Halloween when I was a kid. The fireworks are great, but that always seemed secondary to the cookouts and other fare going on. My favorite memory of July 4 goes all the way back to 1984, we had just moved into our house right by Lake Paradise in the town where we live now, my parents were still together at that point and we were having a huge cookout with my cousins, aunt & uncle grandparents and I think if I remember correctly, some friends. It was also the first time I ever saw the Summerfest since we went downtown to fly my uncle's radio controlled airplane, which I thought was so cool.
I don't remember the foods but I don't think I would be...
