Our children and their spouses and their children, that can, traditionally gather at our house to celebrate the Birthday of the United States. We barbecue, picnic, roast hot dogs and eat all kinds of outdoorsy food like watermelon and potato salad.
Some run in the Liberty 5k. Some stay at the finish line to take photos. :D We make our own parade going to Main Street for the BIG PARADE. Back at our house we put together our own entertainment. We play in the water. (two months out of the year, if we are lucky the weather is warm enough... so we enjoy it while we can). We play in the water a lot!
Of course there are little fireworks, and medium fireworks. And then we take our lawn chairs to the front yard and watch the BIG FIREWORKS going off at the fairgrounds.
