4th of July Plans?

This month has just flown by. I don't know where June went, but today the ILs came over with some fireworks, and I was completely taken off guard! I was merrily thinking it was still mid-June, even though I knew the date. I guess it just hadn't sunk in.

Does your family have any 4th of July traditions?

We typically go to a parade in town, though for the past two years there has not been one in our town. I miss that parade because it's one of those cozy small town events. We would take the bikes and go for a ride into town to watch the parade. Then, we usually have a cookout at my sister's house with the entire family followed by fireworks at a nearby park. We load up the wagons with kids, blankets, and bug spray and head over to the park where the kids play on the playground until dusk when we sit on the blankets and watch the show. I love the 4th!

Moving every 1-2 yrs and spending 6 yrs overseas has lead to no 4th traditions.... but our neighbors are having a BBQ so we're heading over there on SAt

We don't really have 4th of July traditions outside a parade we might seek to find.

We're going by some friends this afternoon for a cookout.
