    Happy 4th of July!
    by Deb Roberts

    Happy Fourth of July!

    Here at Greenleaf we’re famous for our exceptional love of dollhouses, cats, and holidays.  One of our favorite holidays has to be July 4th!   When we think of our forefathers leading the revolution that gave us our freedom, independence and liberty it makes our hearts swell with pride.

    In Philadelphia, the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier honors those who fought and died in the Revolutionary War on the very site where so many gave up their lives.  The eternal flame burns there beside the statue of George Washington gazing toward Independence Hall.

    It’s on this day that we celebrate the birth of our country with a huge variety of fun activities.  Of course, as miniaturists, we commemorate these different types of celebrations in our own little way.  We’ll begin by flying the flag to show respect and honor for our country.

    It’s nice to get a headstart on the day and take advantage of the morning air to cool an apple pie on the window sill.  Karin isn’t just a skillful miniaturist; she’s also an excellent tiny baker.

    Food is usually a major part of any holiday and the 4th of July is no different.  We love summer foods that we can pack into a picnic basket and take with us to community celebrations.

    Who doesn’t recognize potato salad in a Tupperware bowl?  How much more Americana can we fit into one meal?

    Sometimes we celebrate by camping out and spending time enjoying our beautiful country up close and personal.

    No camping trip is complete without making some s’mores!

    And of course, even if we stay home for the holiday, we can always fire up the backyard grill and invite friends and family to come celebrate with us.

    Since July 4th is in the summer, a lot of people take to the road to get out and see our country.  One of the best summer vacations is a trip to the beach.  We can walk along the boardwalk and enjoy an ice cream cone while we play carnival games.

    Happy Fourth of July!

    Relaxing on the beach is one of the nicest possible ways to enjoy a 4th of July vacation.

    Regardless of where you go or what you do, no 4th is complete without ending the day with a fireworks display.  The kids beg and plead to shoot off a few bottle rockets all day...

    ... but the best part is the big show over the lake or at the fairgrounds or at the park.   No matter how we celebrate the day, when it’s concluded with the sight of the rocket’s red glare, we’re all reminded of just how lucky we are to live in America. 

    Happy Fourth of July!

    Happy Independence Day to all our friends in the USA.  We wish you a safe and joyous holiday.
