We spent the majority of the day celebrating July 4th on Schoffield Barracks ~ a U.S. Army base. It was awesome! There were hundreds of families enjoying the sun, foods, bands and vendors. Mark set up our little sun shade tent and we listened to several bands and watched people.
America has a rich culture and history. No where better to see that than where our military meets our civilians. Everyone loves their kids, to eat and relax under the Hawaiian sun. We saw demonstrations and spoke with military police about their life.
As we settled in at home, the fireworks show began from right outside our living room window. We watched the beautiful display of lights and heard the music of the show. What a terrific, cozy way to end our day of celebration.
We are proud of our history, our America. All the steps of 1776 led us to the leaps of 2011.
