The 4th of July

We decorated our produce stand and sign with flags for the 4th.
Red, White, and Blueberry Bars for dessert!
On Independence Day we can't forget to celebrate The War For Southern Independence! :)
Yesterday evening we went to the Selmer Park for the July 4th festivities.
Some of us played in the community band patriotic concert.
David played the bass drum! (It belongs to the high school.)

This is what the percussion section used for the Liberty Bell on the "Liberty Bell March"!
Daddy and Jonathan (and David in the back) getting ready to play
The band played several patriotic pieces.
After the band performed, we watched a slideshow of pictures to honor local veterans. Deborah took this shot as our grandfather's picture appeared on the screen.

The fireworks display was scheduled next, but during the slideshow, it started to storm! Everyone grabbed their lawn chairs and ran for their cars. We needed rain so badly no one cared that we didn't get to see fireworks this 4th of July.
