      Ten years ago, my friends’ parents (who live on the lake) always had us over for fourth of July – going all out with boat rides and old fashioned cracker jacks and coca cola. Who would have thought we’d be bringing our kids, nieces, and nephews to the same celebration!?! Love this time!

    • Vanessa

      We always grill for July 4th & it kicks off the week leading to my
      son’s birthday…this year he will be a teenager!!!!

    • Madeline

      It started about 20 years ago when I was just a toddler, my mom, dad, and older sistrer would start the day by going to the local 4th of July Parade in our small town, then spending the day in the park. After that we would go to “ground zero” to watch fireworks. (which is really just the parking lot in front of where they set off the city fireworks.) Every year, we have done exactly the same, except it has grown to my whole huge family which now consists of 10 of us and several other families and friends. We also now include a celebration of my brothers birthday which is July 3rd at the fireworks. It is so much fun and I hope to continue the tradition when I start my own family.

      My son and wife’s birthdays are both around the 4th so we treat the holiday as two birthday parties and an Independence celebration at once. We usually cook a large breakfast, go swimming at the lake, and watch fireworks that night….. a WHOLE DAY OF FUN.

Naps on blankets in the shade and then side walk chalk in the driveway and bubble machines on the porches while the adults get ready for a dinner cookout and then we all load up and go to the local fireworks display. Then the kids are so tired they can barely make it through bath time to their beds!
