Are you ready for tomorrow? Are you planning to celebrate with your extended family or relax with your immediate family? Visiting with friends?
The plans for our 4th stay pretty much the same. We go to a nearby small town for their parade. Then we come home, and have burgers, potato salad, baked beans and chips. We watch “Independence Day” (because we all know that on the 4th, we’re really celebrating freedom from evil extra terrestrials!) Then in the evening, we buy a pizza, drive back to the small town for their fireworks show along the waterfront. It’s a full day, but full of traditions that we started when our youngest was born. Once again, however, there is one tradition that we won’t be having, and that is setting off fireworks at home. We have a foliage covered fence along the driveway that is directly across from our front door. I’d really hate for us to be known as the neighbor who set the neighborhood ablaze!
Today, our plans include making a couple of items ahead of time for tomorrow’s lunch. I’m making potato salad and Heather is making an Oreo pie (if I can, I will post this easy recipe).
I need to go prepare for a hungry family.
Have a happy and safe July 4th everyone!
