Happy birthday America! I spent the day with my family at the beach. When we were growing up, it was always our tradition to go to the beach on the 4th of July, but as we grew up and jobs and life got in the way, our tradition had to come to an end. This year, we all had the day off, so we packed up and headed to the beach (with all of the other bennies!) It was a gorgeous day, albeit a bit chilly in the water, but a day at the beach beats a day anywhere else!
