What does Independence Day mean to you?

It means having the independence to sit and relax poolside and catch up on some of my best reading as my boys splash and frolic around... Maybe next year!

This year it meant getting into the pool as the boys splashed me! And jumped on me. And jumped off of me!

The Newport fireworks are scheduled to go off in just less than two hours. We can see the fireworks from the hill, overlooking The Narragansett Bay, right next to us. We'll not have to fight the crowds. My only concern is that I may not make it up that late tonight!

For those of you still celebrating may your evening be Red, White and Bubbly!

Happy Birthday America!
