Happy Independence Day!

We're off to celebrate in Wyoming, where fireworks are legal, my uncle grills burgers, and we watch the town fireworks from the alley while listening to patriotic music. Pictures will follow!

And now, your presidential trivia for the day:

Both John Adams, Thomas Jefferson, and James Monroe died on the 4th of July, with Adams and Jefferson dying on the 4th in the same year. John Adams' last words were "Jefferson still lives," which was not quite true, Jefferson having died earlier in the day.
