On this 4th of July, my family gave thanks to God, ate hot dog kebabs (grilled!), smashed mini cupcakes in each others’ faces, ran through some sprinklers, dressed up as the founding fathers (including Buddercup, our pookie, er, dog!) and had a contest for best costume! Tonight, we will give thank-you letters to local veterans, run around with sparklers, watch some detonated fireworks (maybe!), and fall asleep to ‘Captain America’ or ‘National Treasure’. It will be fun and nothing will stop us from celebrating our grand independence!!! 😅🎉🎇🎆
What are you doing this 4th? Care to share? I’d love to know!
