Happy 4th of July

Good morning folks, happy 4th of July. The photos below were taken during the Father's day celebration. We chose to give my FIL a flag to replace the old one in his front yard. We really didn't know what to give him until we passed by at the flag aisle in KMart and I told my husband, that's it! He does need a new flag as he was planning to buy a new and we beat him to it lol. Glad he like it!

Here's my Dad, Dave (my BIL), EJ & Rye, and hubby helping each other to put the new flag.
I read on one of the blog I visited that the 4th of July is being celebrated as the Philippine-American Friendship day in the Philippines to commemorate the liberation of the Philippines from the Japanese invasion through the help of the American team led by Mc. Arthur. He is a one big hero to the Filippinos! Independence day in the Philippines is celebrated in June 12.
Thanks for visiting folks and have a great Sunday.

  4. Your FIL and his children are all so patriotic citizens to exhibit the US flag right there at his front lawn. Happy Fourth of July to you all and to all our American bloggers. Yes, Fourth of July is also celebrated as Fil-American Friendship Day in the Philippines to commemorate the granting of independence to the Philippines by the US government in July 4, 1946. Thanks for the post. God bless you all always.

  6. July 4 and the stars-and-stripes go together perfectly. The new flag for your FIL is a wonderful gift, the sentiment wonderful.

    So many Americans do take the freedoms we have for granted. You have a viewpoint that many citizens would do well to pay attention to: the Philippines was under siege, and being liberated has to mean a lot, losing freedom is terrible - happily, freedom returned. Americans have to be made to understand that freedom is not free, never take your liberties for granted!
