Happy Independence Day, America!  Today is the 237th Anniversary of the birth of our country!  Please take time to admire these photos, then go out and make your own memories of this country, and tell your kids how great our country is and can be!  Please be safe while you are celebrating — let’s not turn a celebration into a tragedy!  May God Bless our country, keep it safe, bless our soldiers, keep them safe, and remind all of us of the price that our forefathers paid so many years ago to make this dream a reality!

Our nation was grown on the blood, sweat, and tears of many men and women throughout it’s history.  My prayer is that we, as a nation, may remember that commitment that once existed, and work together, side by side, regardless of party or political affiliation, and return our country to the greatness that I know it can achieve.

Wordless Wednesday – Memorial Day!

Walt Disney World Railroad

Welcome to this week’s edition of the Wordless Wednesday Blog Hop — hosted as always by my friend Deb from Focused on the Magic! We don’t have a whole lot to share with you today, really just some pictures that remind us of Memorial Day, in honor of both our country and Deb’s theme for this week, but we hope you enjoy our offering nonetheless!

The first picture is of the Walt Disney World Railroad’s Main Street Station.  I don’t know why, but this picture, with the American Flag on top, just screams “Americana” to me!

Voices of Liberty

The second photo I’m sharing with you is of the group Voices of Liberty — that you can hear at the American Adventure Pavilion in Epcot’s World Showcase!  They are a great group — well worth listening to — so stop by and hear them before seeing the show!

Colonial Band marching

Our last picture to share with you is of the colonial band that is marching on their way to (or from) the Liberty Inn restaurant.  They are great to listen to also, so make it a point to eat a leisurely lunch at the Liberty Inn and wait for them to appear.  You’ll be glad you did!
