Happy 4th of July

Last night we went to the fireworks display in Athens. We got there early for a picnic and to let Sam run around the field with some new-found friends. It was cool so we were dressed for fall weather.

Sam & Emily liked dancing to Hannah Montana which was playing on Samantha's iPod. There were some early fireworks going on behind us.

Sam loved watching the show.

She was very impressed by the grand finale.

This holiday has taken on different meanings for us over the years. In 2003, it marked Cameron's first day of remission. He had completed 3 intense rounds of chemo and was declared to be cancer free. In 2008, it marked 100 days post-transplant. In 2009, another first. Another holiday that he has been gone. 247 days.

  1. At about 10:30pm I thought of you guys. I felt sad that you were having to get through yet another holiday without Cameron. So I did the only thing I could think to do . . . I said a prayer that the night would be blessed for you.

    Looks like you had a great time. The pictures of Sam and Emily are great! Thanks for sharing them.
