Whats more American than baseball? I am, I am, I am! Did you have a good 4th of July! I hope that if you were in America you enjoyed it and all of the things that come with this glorious holiday. The 4th of July is my favorite holiday. It includes fireworks, parades, candy, sunshine, watermelon, red, white and blue, swimming, family parties, corn, and singing patriotic songs. Those are some of the best things in the world all grouped into one! It is true that I wasn't in America. I wasn't with my family. My wardrobe options for my infamous red white and blue outfit were limited and I didn't get to light a sparkler... But Israel gave me the best 4th of July I could have asked for!
Later that night we had a legitimate 4th of July BBQ! The kitchen staff was so nice to us and went all out. It made me so happy. We had burgers, potatoes, corn, ice cream and apple pie. It was so good. We even sat on the grass like a picnic!

Proof of the excellent meal.
First bite of my first summer corn on the cob.
We were so happy!
We tried to make a flag with our bodies.
Can you see the blue stars? The red and white stripes?
What more American than bows?
All in all if I couldn't be in America for this beautiful day I think I would pick Israel as a close second. It was such a fun day! We topped it off with a fun FHE activity of "Minute-to-win-it" games. We ate the most magnificent cake that Sister Ludlow made for us that had a blue berries for the stars, strawberries and whipping creme for the stripes. It made it like home. It also wouldn't be complete without a patriotic dance party. Our playlist included songs such as Firework and Party in the USA. I am so proud to be an American. Being away from the country that I love truly made me appreciate it. I will be so excited to be on American soil once again. Israel gave me the greatest day I could have asked for.
God Bless the USA.
