Blue Monday - Happy 4th of July!

Hello! Welcome to Blue Monday! For complete instructions, just click here.

Thank you for leaving me a comment. It means so much to me. Please visit other Blue participants by clicking on their links and leaving comments. If it's too much for one day, come back later in the week. Make someone's day special by wishing them a Happy Blue Monday!
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Each year America goes wild with 4th of July celebrations. America celebrates her birthday by showing her colors. Everything is decorated in red, white, and Blue. We always hang up our flag.



Fireworks are important in the celebration. Temporary tents are set up all over town, selling fireworks. Here's a pretty Florida Blue sky. Of course, you'll notice the Blue on the American flags and on the sign.

However, did you note Johnny's finger in the lower left corner?



Here's a shot showing another tent with a Blue striped top.

Also, please notice that same finger photo bombing!



The inside of the tent has plenty of red, white, and Blue on display.



Here's a final shot of the Blue striped tent without Johnny's finger!

(That car is Blue too!)



This year, an even wilder frenzy of patriotic color is happening as America is playing Belgim today in the march toward the World Cup. (Perfect timing!) We found these red, white, and Blue soccer cupcakes for sale at Walmart.



So, this Friday, please join in to wish America Happy Birthday!




Happy Blue Monday!

Although my post is very lengthy this week I enjoyed putting it together. I hope you have a wonderful Fourth of July. We celebrate Hannah's birthday on the 3rd. I will use her cake as a blue Monday addition next week, God willing. Enjoy the week and thanks Sally for always sharing with us.

Thanks Sally for Blue Monday. My blue is mixed with green and waxed but it is still blue. Happy (in advance) 4th of July.

I think this may be the first year of many that fireworks will be allowed in Colorado as the drought has abated. Happy 4th of July and Blue Monday, Sally!

I wish you a wonderful 4th July celebrations. I am going for Belgium after England and Australia are out of the World Cup because we lived there for 8 years - so hopefully it will be a great match & may the best team win!

Maria Gagliano said...

See a tent top and it is going to be fun! My kids always think a circus is around when they see one of those. Nothing like this by me.

Happy 4th of July. Great Photos really put you in the holiday spirit. I love that news story last week "The Kitten in the Truck". People offered to pay for the repairs.
Thanks for the Great "Blue Monday" Linky idea. I plan to participate each week.

Ann said...

The blue and white tents really stand out and make for a pretty place to buy. I enjoy fireworks displays, we try to take one in. My girls love sparklers so much.

Hi Sally, I like all your 4th of July excitement. The Soccer game is exciting too. I made a mistake when linking and forgot to update my link to the current post, so I corrected it but don't know how to get rid of the first one. Sorry.

Black Jack's Carol said...

A wonderful post, Sally, and many thanks for hosting this beautiful meme. I had to feed Bill :) but indeed planned to return to comment. Sorry I missed last week, but I'm so happy that sweet kitten in the BLUE truck was adopted! Happy 4th of July to you and Johnny. I think that finger print adds character :)
