4th of July Printable- God Bless America

The 4th of July is my most favorite holiday.  I don't know what it is: the day off of work, picnic food, staying up late, parades, fireworks... the works.  It has all the makings of the best day.

Growing up, my family would spent the weekend at The Cabin in the mountains of Kamas, Utah.  A lot of my extended family have cabins all in the same neighborhood so we would bounce in-between the families' cabins during the weekend: a bite of pasta salad here, a cookie there, a plate of scones or Pace Bars there, all while floating down the Prover River on your way to playing "Pooh sticks" and the player piano at the Red cabin, which is brown, mind you.

My husband's family celebrates by having breakfast at the Brighton Ski Resort while listening to musician play the guitar with his hands and drums with his feet at the same time.  The mountains are perfect, the weather is slightly chilly and you are surrounded by those you love.

The last three 4th of July's we have spent in Texas making new and exciting memories.  We don't have mountains, chilly mornings, extended or immediate family or a river to float down, but it is still one of my favorite holidays.  It is amazing how we adapt as humans, isn't it?  We are use to doing something all of our life, then we get married, adapt a little more, and then move across the country and adapt even more.  It is in these moments we can decided if we want to adapt to remain happy or we can try and recreate the past and be miserable. Change is hard. Growing up is hard.  But trying to stay in the past makes unhappy and we miss so much of life in the present.

Wow, that was deep.  Enough of that.
