For the past few years I have either been traveling or recuperating from travel and therefore haven't really celebrated Independence Day. This year started out the same and I skipped the local parade to spend the morning working on a class I am developing, but I decided to take a break in the afternoon and meet up with my family to enjoy a picnic in the park. In addition, we celebrated the birthday of my nephew's fiancé Chrissy.
The weather was beautiful and the company was fun. It was a delightful afternoon. Here are a few of the pictures of the day.
