July is the month that we, in the United States, celebrate our country’s independence. Generally speaking, we honor the bravery and determination of our forefathers by having a BBQ, drinking some beer (or beerlike substance) and blowing stuff up! I love FIREWORKS!!! The boom, the colors, the majestic pictures in the night sky! So, this month I’m going share some of my favorite pictures of this year’s fireworks!

I can’t believe my father has been gone for an entire year. There are days when I feel like I spoke to him less than 24 hours before, and others when I feel like he’s been missing from my life for an eternity. I decided to use this month’s Snapshot Saturday Posts to pay tribute to him and some of the places he loved most. We spent a lot of the last few years revisiting some of the adventures we had while I was growing up. We went to ball games, amusement parks, the zoo, the movies, car races, casinos, and museums. One of my favorite memories of childhood was going to the Bronx Zoo with my Dad, my brother and our Grandma. The last trip I took with my dad was a return visit to the Zoo. This is a picture of him outside of the Rhinoceros habitat in April of 2013.
This week’s picture is a quick photo of some of the local Christmas lights in our neighborhood. It doesn’t seem like people go as crazy here as they do on Long Island. I haven’t seen a single inflatable lawn ornament, and the Christmas lights are much more reserved and less over-the-top. I’m not so sure if I like it.
How bout you guys? Are you an over-the-top Christmas decorator? Or are you more reserved?
