Lasting Memories # 198 "My Country Tis of Thee"

Happy Holiday weekend and week to all of my US and Canada friends!!  
With that said, the newest Lasting Memories challenge to kick off JULY is themed
"My Country Tis of Thee."
LMCB 198
Do a layout about a place you like to visit in your country.
I was able to to do this no problem!
There are 2 main places we love to go to every 4th of July... and in 2012, we were able to go to both of them!  :)
My Husband's parents live on an island right on the water, so the beach we went to for the actual 4th.  Family, fishing, food, fun and fireworks!
Then from July 6th to 8th, we trekked over to my parent's summer place that is on a river where there is a parade, pool time, boat time, beach time and then a great fireworks show!!
We are fortunate to be able to have these places to visit and have our fun!!

Love this double LO Michele - great colours and I love the stars too. It's always tricky to juggle families on holidays, so how cool to be able to see everyone in a single weekend and have lots of fun at the same time. Wishing you a happy July weekend :)

Love the color palette!! What a fun LO. I'm jealous! A summer house within the family would be so neat. I've read about those in books but that's about it. Love this!
