4th of July weekend.

A time for family and friends, grilling and chilling, conversation and games, fireworks and fun.

With all the revelry of Independence Day weekend, it's easy to forget about why we're celebrating. It is, after all, America's birthday! So what do you love most about our great nation?

There's so many things. From coast to coast, north to south, perhaps too many to mention.

So lets let the great John Wayne put it into words (and pictures) for us. And have a happy and safe 4th of July weekend!
