IN THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, we have much to be thankful for, most notably our freedom. Have a wonderful Fourth of July and enjoy these photos, my gift to you as we celebrate the birth of our great nation.
My great nephew Hank, born on June 20, is celebrating his first Fourth of July.
My daughters light the southwestern Minnesota prairie sky with sparklers at a weekend pre-July Fourth family gathering.
The flag which flies at the home of my middle brother.
Flags line the park area along Highway 169 through St. Peter.
One of my favorite patriotic songs, America the Beautiful.
