“The year was 1976– the bicentennial of our country. Our Father wanted to celebrate. So he had my sister and I dress up as if we were Civil War soldiers. We proudly (yet embarrassingly) marched around the block where we lived. But that wasn’t enough.. oh no.. my father had us march around Ben Franklin (the store) and other shops in the plaza like TG&Y and Publix. Looking back 38 years later, I realize its nice to share memories like this one so the world can see just how much we were willing to do for our country!”

Isn’t it enough that we’re related?

“This photo of me and my parents on the Fourth of July. Every year, our neighborhood has a parade and this year in particular my dad went all out making us wear these awful costumes. I was very upset because all of my friends got to ride their bikes in the parade and I had to wear the costume with my parents. My dad still considers these outfits a success because they got us a photo in the newspaper.”

“A Fourth of July variation of the old warning, ‘Never fry bacon naked.’ Ouch. It’s me and my dad in this picture, and he still loves playing with sparklers.”

“This is our annual family photo and what better way to show we love each other then to show our love of our great nation with USA shirts. In the midst of our shoot the photographer asks if we like bunnies… who doesn’t like bunnies, not the Hallidays that’s for sure.”

“This is my older sister Angela’s wedding. They were wearing the hats because our mother said they made everyone look elegant. My sister had a 4th of July wedding because she is a redneck at heart and that is the reason of the red, white, and blue flowers and streamers. Oh, and one of the flowers girls had just puked.”
