"The second day of July, 1776, will be the most memorable epoch in the history of America. I am apt to believe that it will be celebrated by succeeding generations as the great anniversary festival. It ought to be commemorated as the day of deliverance, by solemn acts of devotion to God Almighty. It ought to be solemnized with pomp and parade, with shows, games, sports, guns, bells, bonfires, and illuminations, from one end of this continent to the other, from this time forward forever more." ~John Adams
Even more special!? My dad has documentation of how my family is related to this great president and his son John Quincy Adams Jr!
We went to a BBQ at our friend’s house…and she just so happens to be the super nurse that helped deliver Presley! Who would have thought that we would have a baby, and make a friend out of it at the same time?! We love spending time with Bonnie and her family. They are just as crazy as we are!
Hope you all enjoyed your 4th as much as we did!
