Trig and I are gearing up to watch Piper Indi march in the “big” annual 4th of July parade tomorrow with her cousins in Wasilla! (Yes, Piper’s middle name “Indi” is short for Independence.) Todd picks up Bristol and Willow to fly them over to Bristol Bay so they can get their hands dirty on our commercial fishing grounds – the season’s peak is soon and we’re praying for an onslaught of wild Alaskan salmon to slay for appreciative consumers and a huge harvest for our young crew that needs to make some money for school tuition!
Willow celebrates her birthday during this holiday week, and she gets a tank of gas in her pickup truck; it’s her favorite gift. Glad it’s Tuesday because we’ll get to tune in to Bristol’s show “Life’s a Tripp” on the Lifetime Network tonight amidst Piper’s parade preparations… I think it’s the episode where the girls attend the CPAC conference with me and we have a wild time with great friends and patriots! Tune in tonight to see Willow’s profound advice she shares on my politics. :)
Thinking about our son and all of America’s deployed troops and our vets who let us celebrate our great nation’s independence. Thank you, U.S. military, for serving there so we can celebrate here. We love America and we thank those who serve and sacrifice.
Happy 4th of July, America!

If you like Tim McGraw’s new pickup truck anthem “Truck Yeah“, you’ll understand my kids’ love of their rigs. Here’s one of the girls’ trucks; it explains why they’re expected to work for a full gas tank.
