This year, you are 236 years old. How did that happen??
Although we didn't have any cake or birthday candles, we celebrated in true American fashion - with deep-fried everything, ferris wheels, and fireworks.
We ate hotdogs and ice-cream, and the funnel cake was delicious. We played games, laughed, and spent hours in the park. And at the end of the day, we watched the fireworks light up the night sky above us.
Happy birthday, America!
