What Will She Paint?

So many friends I met here...!

all the things that you might see on the 4th of July

...if you were here
you would see this flower blooming
in front of my window
20 min. from the beach

...if you were here 
you would see jugglers, muscians, 
face painting, a concert

 or blowing a ceramic vase in the artist corner
at Balboa Park in San Diego

...if you were here in Old Town Sacramento
you would eat great food, 
hamburgers at a BBQ, chicken in a restaurant, 
hotdogs at the beach

...if you were here 
you would see these flags 
waving proudly everywhere 
Happy 4th of July!

I'm not a huge holiday person, but I really like this one. My neighborhood has a parade and a huge water war. Fireworks at the lake at 9:00, we can see them very well from our back yard. Have yourself a great weekend and holiday!

Have a happy 4th of July, Jeannette. I remember how well this day is celebrated in the States. It was always a fun day with a barbecue and fireworks at the country club. I do miss celebrating that day.

And you have fun on Canada day:)

Yeah, these are great places!:)

It's easy to celebrate this holiday, because it's always nice weather, and who does not like fire works??

Pat MFF,
Thank you! and also for visiting! Enjoy the day of Canada!

Maybe yo can start a new tradition -there are enough Americans living in Holland that they would want to celebrate it with you! (most of them, probably live in Den Haag, Amsterdam and around Utrecht)
