Fourth of July- Hanover Beach Style

*Warning- photo overloaded post*

For as long as I can remember, we have been celebrating July 4th with my dad’s side of the family at Hanover Beach, IN. It is extremely hard for me to describe this annual family vacation in words. What I can say is that I wish this type of fun-filled, care-free, non-stop laughing, family bonding vacation for everyone on this earth- it’s that good for the soul. With that being said, I am so proud to be an American and to have spent this holiday exactly as it should be spent- cherishing time with my loved ones, eating good food, dancing, laughing and celebrating freedom.
