Memories of the 4th of July

In 1976 America celebrated it's 200th birthday.

Our country celebrated!!

Our church had festivities from morning until night. We started with a church service outside on the grass under a tree. There was storytelling in the shade of big trees, & games, balloons, etc. for the kids. A pig roasted all day and there was oodles of food.

I made the girls calico shorts with their names appliqued on the front and matching calico bonnets. I made myself a red print prairie dress. Everyone really put a lot of effort into the preparations for this special day.

I was so glad that I had saved my daughters' outfits when I was working on their scrapbooks. The layouts will help them remember the wonderful time we had that day.

What memories do you have of 1976?
