Flag bearing, picnic eating, fun times in the hot summer!! We enjoy a good rodeo that is west of us in St. Paul nearly every year. These images are from last year's 4th of July. We like the fact it is family friendly and the announcer prays before the start of the rodeo. He thanks God for our country and for the men and women who fought for the country. The music is great as well and it's all around fun. We went last night as well and we had a good time and laughed and I took a ton of photos and some video. It's still in camera. I never shared images from 2014 since it was a hard time for me as my mom had recently died. So now I have made it through my year of firsts. But that's another story.
One of my favorite photos I took last year is this horse in the waiting pens outside the rodeo stands.
Fireworks after the rodeo!!!
Enjoy your day! Whatever you do, be safe and thank God for our freedom that we have in the USA!!! Life has changed so much since the founding fathers set up this nation. But I am so happy to live here and have served my country along with many others, including my husband and my cousin, who just back recently from Afghanistan, friends, other family members, including other cousins and my brother and uncles and grandfather (WWI). God bless America, land that I love, stand beside her and guide her........
HAPPY BIRTHDAY, AMERICA!!!!
