Images for a Patriotic Fourth!

Some Images to get you in the "Spirit of '76"
 
I cannot believe I let so much time go by in between blog posts!  I blame it on the heat.  Northern Utah doesn't get as hot as places like Phoenix and Las Vegas...but this week has brought record temperatures to some cities.  So we have been getting temps from 100 to 105.  Down in the very southwest corner of our state is a city called St. George.  For some reason they have their own climate. Warm in winter...but blistering hot in the summer.  Today will probably reach somewhere around 111 degrees.  Snow Birds love it...many older citizens own condos there in which to spend the coldest winter months...but today I will be glad to be closer to the mountains than the desert. 
 
I am also taking the lazy way out today...posting some patriotic images I recently added to my collection.  Many are from Pinterest.  I will be spending most the afternoon getting ready for a big family party tomorrow.  I hope this mix has some images you don't already have.  Enjoy!
 
Happy Independence Day!!

Love the military 'SALUTE' image! I actually went to my playroom yesterday and made a July tag! Miracle given the flowers, the driving the car to shows, musical at church and busy summer life! Happy 4th to you Bestie!

I was teasing Kim of "Musings from Kim K" as her and the family were here in AZ for our hottest weekend in a couple of years. They were at the Grand Canyon on Saturday and Sunday where she recorded 107 degrees. I told her to come down to the valley where we hit 120 and get some real heat. ;o) I really don't mind the heat, but now that we're officially in monsoon season, it hurts! Any kind of humidity hurts my medical conditions, so it's not fun.

Have a wonderful 4th of July!

Hugs,
Meri
