This year I will be with my daughter (B) and grand kids for the 4th of July. I bought cute little dresses for the girls and a shirt for , my grandson BB. We bought decorations and plan to have a great time being together. Big Jon and his wife will be with us for some part of the weekend, and we plan to have a little going away party for him. He deploys in 3 weeks. Some how the importance and meaning of July 4th has changed so much since MP and Big Jon are serving in the military, it's more personal now. Strange how that is.
