Not a single photo did I take of our Independence Day Extravaganza. The children and their friends paraded through the yard, there was a cook-out, and lots of fireworks. I missed photos of the giggling pyrotechnics team running wildly from the explosives they lit, the dog with a crepe paper bow around her neck, and just good friends having good times. I never post photos of the faces of people who don't live in my house... but I figure the fine folks who lined the street for the 1976 Independence Day Parade in Fieldon, Illinois won't mind. That's Scott riding the tricycle. His mom didn't forget to take pictures.
