Saturday in the Park...


It REALLY was the 4th of July!!! We went to the parade, where we saw 'people laughing, people dancing, a man selling ice cream'





Cassidy's manicure...My friend Kim's pedicure...













My great-niece and namesake, Aidan Joy, loving that watermelon...
It was a 'real celebration, waiting for us all.' The holiday barbecue was primo...good food, good friends, good times. 'Can you dig it? Yes, I can!'


Everyone is enjoying glow sticks while we wait for the fireworks to begin...

'I've been waiting such a long time for today.' I wanted to hear my friend Wayne's voice one last time as he announced the Melaleuca Celebration fireworks. Thanks to the beauty of radio and saving things FOREVER, Wayne was right there in the nighttime sky...praising America and making us believe for just a few brief moments that Saturday in the Park is indeed, 'a real celebration.' I'm pretty sure my good friend Wayne was right there with us, watching from above this time, instead of from down below. I think that's why the fireworks glowed just a little bit brighter and little bit longer this year. Happy (late) Birthday, America! Drive safely, Wayne!
