This morning we started the holiday weekend right. We attended Harper Street bike parade in Newberry. It started about ten years ago when the residents of Harper Street decided to let their children ride their bikes, wagons, and carts down the street on the 4th of July. It has grown from there.
It was a delightful site, full of all of the things that make America what it is. Children riding bikes, pulled by their parents in wagons, even carried down the street as the mass of red, white, and blue surged towards us. No beautiful floats, just beautiful American children and their parents celebrating in a simple way their country. I loved it. I hope you find a simple way to celebrate this wonderful country we call home.
Happy Fourth of July and Happy Birthday to my niece Katie, our 4th of July kid!
