The 4th of July is such a special time. I have some great memories of spending this holiday in my family's hometown, Brook, Indiana. Now this town LOVES its 4th of July, especially the Brook Parade. A few years ago, Brook celebrated it's 150th birthday with a big, multiple day event. My dad, being a native, a retired history teacher, and great,great (maybe add another great...I get confused after a few of those "greats")grandson of one of the founding fathers, was right in the thick of it all. They had an old fashioned wheat harvest, a play, and countless other events packed into a fun weekend. Here are a few pics from July 4, 2006.
One of my favorite pics of my dad and Bear. She was about 20 months old.
Mom. She was soooo proud of that cake; she made it!
HAPPY BIRTHDAY AMERICA!
