Our little town does a great job celebrating the 4th of July. For a town of only 267 people, Murdock is able to put on a great celebration year after year. Each year, myself, my wife, and the employees of Oxbow put together a float for the annual parade. It’s a fun tradition that I always look forward to, and this year was no exception.
Independence Day is special for obvious reasons, but my 4th was particularly meaningful this year. The reason for my special excitement was that all of Pat’s and my grandchildren were in town and able to ride on the Oxbow float. I think I speak for all grandparents when I say that there’s a special warmth and joy involved when you’re able to have all of your grandkids together.
Here’s a photo of the 2014 Oxbow float. I wish I could say that I had something to do with the cuteness of our grandkids, but I know you wouldn’t believe that for a second.
I hope you all had a safe and wonderful Independence Day!
