Happy 4th!

Happy 4th of July my fellow Americans! Make sure to do something fun and something patriotic today. Shake a veteran's hand. Eat a burger and some potato salad. Watch some fireworks.

Reid and I woke up this morning and talked about what a great idea it would be to name all of our future dogs after presidents, going in chronological order ("here Washington! Come Jefferson!")... but of course I'd feel bad for the dog who got to be Taft... And I wouldn't know whether to call the dog Grover or Cleveland when we got to him, because they're both such great dog names! Reid thought that perhaps we should have two dogs and name one Grover and the other Cleveland. Then we could stand outside and call "Come Grover! Cleveland!" Deep thoughts... deep thoughts in the Neilsen household on this sunny and beautiful 4th of July.

Anyway, whatever you choose to do today (reminiscing about American presidents or not) enjoy yourselves! And be safe.

I think you should name them for presidents by TERM, so you can have a Franklin, a Delano, AND a Roosevelt (actually, you can have ANOTHER Roosevelt, too), just so you can have a Grover and a Cleveland. He did serve two terms, didn't he? Non-consecutive, thanks to the Hoosier Benjamin Harrison?

You forgot Johan Adams...Everybody forgets John Adams....
