    What a fun kit! I was lucky enough to be in Monterey with my family for the 4th. We celebrated with volleyball, walks on the beach, BBQ and a family party that evening. The only bummer was that this year there were no fireworks in Monterey, but we had fun anyway!

    We spent the 4th weekend visiting my family in Canada so we watched Canada Day fireworks on the 1st and just hung out in the back yard. Played some badminton, visited some wineries and had a family photo shoot. My sister just had a baby girl and we visited with little Sophia Lyne.

    We kept it relaxed this year. The 4th was our first day with no plans in 3 weeks!!!! We were grateful to stay home with nothing to do but read good books and play family games.

  • July fourth wasn’t as fun as the years past but it doesn’t mean I didn’t enjoy myself. My family and I went and got burgers and played outside. I took many pictures and got a great special one of my son and me. No fireworks, or friends or bbqs but it was a great day spending it with family!

    It was Hot HOt HOT here in New York state, but we braved the heat and went to a small-town parade, then barbequed with family for dinner.

  • My dad had been in cardiac ICU so we didn’t want to go anywhere far so we drove to the end of our subdivision near the desert to watch fireworks from Apache Junction High School. My step daughter and I had just set out our lawn chairs when I noticed a coyote down the street and kids yelling ‘COYOTE!’ At first i thought it was a joke, but then the coyote started running towards me and even brushed by my thigh with it’s wiry hair. I was scared to pieces so we sat in our car with the a/c turned on and watched from there.

    This fourth of July was by far the best celebrated yet. My family and I enjoyed vintage aircrafts flying overhead all morning. We then accomplished some much needed yardwork/landscaping. The weather was unbelievably cool for July so we took the opportunity and used it to our advantage. And I had the happily priveledge of cooking all day for us. I cooked everything on the grill and it was all so delicious. I only wish there were more days like this one, I could go away a happy girl.

    Anyway, we celebrated our 4th with family. I made star-shaped brownies and put red, white & blue sprinkles on top. They were adorable. Served up with a heaping scoop of vanilla ice cream and chocolate syrup topping. The best star-spangled brownie sundaes ever! Grilling and hanging out with family! Also stopping to remember my father-in-law, who was killed on the 4th of July in an accident. Independence Day is always bittersweet for us!

  • We celebrate on both the 3rd and the 4th. Our local town does fireworks on the 3rd. We always go over to a friend’s house where we play music for hours with at least 20 people singing, including “You’re A Grand Old Flag” for when the dessert cake makes its appearance covered with blueberries and strawberries to look like our flag. On the 4th we had a family BBQ with 4 generations. Fun!

    Oh goody goody gumdrops! What a great giveaway!
    We celebrated the 4th at the lake. It rained the whole day Saturday, so Sunday was sunny and clear. We played in the water on the seadoos and layed out, rode the golf cart around, picked blackberries, made homemade ice cream, and ate, ate, ATE! It was fantabulous.
    We then drove the boat over to the marina where they set off beautiful fireworks. It was amazing.
    The best part of it all was the fellowship. My grandparents, parents, sister and fiance, boyfriend and my daughter all are amazing people that I just love to be around. Isn’t it great when you ENJOY being with family?!

    We watched the big fireworks show that our town does on the 3rd. And of course the (big) parade on the 4th. It was nice just to have an extra day off of work:) Thanks for the giveaway!

  • Actually, I couldn’t celebrate that much because I was recovering from sickness that weekend. 🙁
    But – we’d just come back from our cruise vacation on July 2, so my family was still all together. We had a very low-key Fourth, including watching World Cup soccer and the last Harry Potter movie. So nothing traditional, but we were together and having fun. 😀

    I’m Canadian, so I we don’t celebrate July 4th – we celebrate July 1st instead! This year (as we do every year), we stayed over (in a tent) at my inlaws on June 30th so we’d be there bright and early for the celebrations their town puts on for the holiday. First there is a boat parade, then a dog show, then a parade down Main Street (with free candy, freezies, and even t-shirts this year!), then a BBQ back at the house, then a concert and fireworks at night, followed up with another night of backyard camping. It was a wonderful day indeed!

    I live in a “destination” city for the 4th of July (we are a beach town that has a big parade and fireworks)…so I stayed home 😉 Man, you can’t even drive around here on the 4th (last year my friend who lives 10 minutes away, in the next beach town, drove to my house…it took her an HOUR!). My husband dared to ride his bike around (I didn’t want to get hit by a tourist not paying attention LOL)…so I scrapped. I also watched the fireworks from my backyard that evening.

  • My husband and I drove to Minnesota (9 1/2 hours) to visit a friend. We spent the weekend boating, going to a fish fry, eating pizza at a neighbors resort. On the evening of the 3rd, the little town we were staying in put on the most spectacular fireworks show. The motel we stayed at had it’s own pier, and an older couple we had met joined us on the pier to watch. I was so glad I had put aside the expense of boarding the dogs, gas for the pickup and the cost of the motel. The memories of the weekend were priceless!

Then we got to lay out irrigation pipe for the soy beans but being together was the funnest part. Then we got to watch the fireworks from our hill overlooking the cities.

    I met my daughter, her husband and two sons at my sons house (his wife and two daughters). They had friends with their children there also and we put the kids in wagons and pulled them a few blocks to the beachfront where we spent hours waiting for it to be dark enough for fireworks. The kids had glow in the dark wands and rings, snacks and we bought some hot dogs and hamburgers from the vendors. Visited and just enjoyed everyone. Watched the fireworks and pulled the sleeping children home in the wagons.

    We celebrated over 5 days this year!! Nothing to exciting, just lots of family time. We were content to have my husband home this year for the holiday!

    My cousin got married on the 3rd, so it was a wedding weekend for us. On the 4th, we went to my aunt’s and had a cookout!

    Well my kids and I made red/blue jello and cupcakes and enjoyed our annual get together to watch the fireworks. It was a wonderful weekend indeed 🙂

    It was a great weekend. Our church has ‘church in the park’ over the 4th of July weekend and we help out at our local 4th of July event at the park. This year ‘church in the park’ was on Saturday because the local event is an all day fair ending with a fireworks show. So we started Saturday with baseball in the morning and then church in the park. On Sunday, we had more baseball and then fireworks and fun at the park.

    We had a crazy weekend. My husband had to work on Saturday, when so many places celebrated… on the actual Fourth we enjoyed our time together as a family and celebrated the 12th annversary of our engagement. He gave me my very own “sparkler” on the Fourth of July 1998 to ask me to marry him 🙂
