We didn't have any formal plans for Independence Day this year. Since we are new to the area and don't have any family nearby so we decided to play it by ear. We packed up the kids and the grill and headed to Taughannock Falls in Ulysses, NY. It was a gorgeous sunny day. Pweezy had a great time running around and staring at the waterfalls. Cmoney was attached to my hip but smiley as usual. We didn't get to hike or explore the park much but we are here for two years and definitely plan on returning. It was simply beautiful.
