I'm spending the fourth with the majority of our kids, and hopefully going to watch the fireworks down by the river.

Mel Bourn said...

The 4th is one of my favorite holidays. We BBQ, drink lots of beer, and light fireworks. The kids play on the slip and slide, do sparklers, and run around with their cousins.

My family and relatives are going to have a BBQ. Then the children get to go swimming, while some of the adults sit down chat.After that well do fireworks, while competing with some neighborhood friends. The whole point of the competition is to who will be the last to have fireworks. Last year we won and I hope we have another victory.


Kristy said...

I'm having a BBQ with family and friends and then we'll shoot off a bunch of fireworks since it's legal around my neighborhood!

I get together with my family too. We go to the local parade, where I do not casually steal the candy thrown for the children. Then friends go over to my parent's house for barbeque. At night, we watch the local fireworks since unprofessional ones, even sparklers, are illegal in my state.
Happy Independence Day!

Crissy Morris said...

First I'm gonna sleep in :)Then I'm gonna hang out by the pool with my friends and family, for lunch we'll have a cookout and that night I'll take my niece to the river to see the fireworks for the first time...it's her first Independence day!! :)

Karen H in NC said...

Since I live alone, I don't do a lot for the holiday. However, I will be traveling to MI next week to spend some quality time with my kids. Should be fun.

Thanks for the giveaway.
