Celebrations Life & Quirks

Fourth of July


This Fourth of July was relaxing. It wasn’t overly thought out, just a day of grilling, play, and wows (what Jayden calls fireworks). Jayden and the neighbor’s kids played outside and shared toys. We were able to enjoy the fireworks from home. It was so convenient since we didn’t have to lug cameras, snacks, and chairs to the show.

I think next year, we’ll add parading to our holiday celebration; maybe some sparklers and pop rocks. And I’ll continue baking sweets; for every occasion since celebrations are THAT much better when there’s a festive delight on the table. I’m gradually working on these things called traditions…

So how was your Fourth of July?

    I didn't get to see any fireworks this year, so instead, my family and I came together for a small bbq and some fun in the pool with the kids. This is one 4th of July that I have genuinely enjoyed in years.

    Beautiful cake!

    You are so lucky. I wish I could see fireworks from our house! We only had to drive about 10 minutes though. All in all it was a pretty good day :)

    Wow…you guys had a great time on the 4th. we didn't do too much (barely saw the fireworks) and my dad (the big griller guy) was out of town. We did our best to enjoy it. Next year round, I will work on those festivities, like you mentioned :-)

    So glad to see your 4th of July was relaxing. I wish I could say the same for mine but it wasn't too terrible. It seems our kids get bored rather easily, especially when it comes to fireworks.

    Your cake is beautiful!
