so many things to be grateful for this week--celebrating the 4th of july means just a little bit more to me as i get older. enough so that, for example, when hearing the national anthem i might just tear up a bit. theoretically speaking, of course. (allegedly.)

things i am thankful for this week:
**a beautiful, cool night spent celebrating the U S of A up at grandpa & grandma's cabin in pine valley:
**the sweet, gentle, equestrian soul who likes to poke his nose over the wall and let the kids pet him:
**fake tattoos--allowing us to make irrational, impulsive decisions with body art since 1963:
**the hot 9th grade boy who embraced a lower back tat:
**two little playmates who enjoy each other's company:
but, for the record? pierce (or peawce, if you speak mia) was NOT playing with mia. merely BABYSITTING her.
he was there strictly in a supervisory capacitory:)
**the all-girls team who smoked the all-boys team for name that tune TOTAL. WORLD. DOMINATION.
**sparklers & torches that bring out our inner-patriot:
**moapa tribal enterprises. where else could you buy a radical, semi-illegal (okay, mostly) firework that has 10 shots, an image of a pistol, AND shoots flaming balls??
**and, finally, for the fact that said semi-illlegal (OKAY. MOSTLY.) firework brings out the inner 14-year old in my man:
