Fun factoid about me – the Fourth of July is my most favorite holiday. It even outranks Christmas! When you think about our brave forefathers and their decision to break away from British tyranny, well, you can’t help but wanna wear your very best red, white, and blue and sing the Star Spangled Banner at the top of your lungs!
For me, the Fourth of July was strictly a Henderson family affair – we used to have a big party for my dad’s side of the family and, occasionally, a Schellhardt or two may have joined in. The only non-Henderson Fourth of July that I (barely) remember is the one time that we celebrated in Dover with the Delaware Schellhardts. I remember going to the town square at night to watch fireworks and that’s about it. Heck, it might not have even been the Fourth at all; maybe Uncle Bill just had a really good day crabbing that day.
In all the family photographs that I’ve gone through, I haven’t come across any featuring Fourth of July celebrations so that made this Photo Friday difficult. But then I came across this one!
Or maybe they just really like sitting on the lawn waving little Old Glories.
