Running into the sprinklers

Red

White

Blue

Stars 

Stripes

The pop and color of fireworks as they explode into the sky

Setting out cozy blankets a lying on soft grass

Sipping cold soda

Enjoying company with friends and family

Ice Cream on a cone

The beach

Celebrating

A Water balloon toss

And then a water balloon fight

Drying off with the heat of the summer sun

Going on a bike ride

Letting the wind blow into your hair

Strawberry anything

Jumping into a cold pool

Independence 

Running barefoot in a field 

Looking at a old photograph of Mount Rushmore

Fruit salad

Soccer

Sparklers

Watermelon

Decorative napkins

Whipped cream

The American flag

Climbing a tree to watch fireworks

Waiting in line to buy fireworks

Hamburgers

Patriotic

Campfires

Burnt marshmallows

S’mores

Memories

Flashlights

Sunglasses

Drinking a cold glass of water

Basketball

Pure joy

Going to bed late

And sleeping in

Telling scary stories

Looking up at the night sky

A good, long book
