The 4th of July or Independence Day
should be a special day for all Americans to celebrate,
but to us it means even more.
My grandfather-in-law was born on July 1st and he
is a Veteran. I have never met anyone who loves America more.
So, we celebrate his birthday each year on Independence day.
This year I made:
the traditional apple pie,
his favorite birthday cake,
cupcakes for the children- (I found the idea on Pinterest),
and red, white and blue chocolate dipped strawberries,
also found on Pinterest.
(and I love decorations)
I had flags, balloons, twinkle lights, and banners!
This year Pop-Pop got the chance to celebrate his birthday
with my new little niece!
Her birthday is July 1st too!
Pop- Pop played Southern tunes and American favorites,
on the guitar and lead all of us in song!
I believe he felt special.
I love him so dearly!
