My family and I are usually IN our small town's 4th of July Parade every year. This year, however, we are not. We're just going to sit and enjoy the parade, watching all the floats as they pass by! After the parade, we're heading to friends for a relaxing party, and from there we'll all head out to go watch our town's fireworks together.
My favorite 4th of July memory would be of the 2nd parade that we were in back in 2004 when I was pulled along in a RICKSHAW right alongside our church's huge CATERPILLAR full of our kiddos!
We usually spend the Fourth with our family and friends. We eat way to much food, talk and laugh to much, make s'mores over the firepit and watch the fireworks show on the lake.
This year, we're celebrating in true patriotic spirit. There's nothing more American than enjoying a good ole game of baseball and eating a hot dog with all the fixin's, while rooting for the home town team. Our Hickory Crawdads are playing against the Hagerstown Suns. After the game, fireworks will be lighting the Carolina sky. Our 4th will be a home run, for sure! Except for our dog Petey. Hopefully, the chamomile will calm him just in time for the booms in the sky.
Even though I wasn't born in this great country, I still feel a great sense of pride and I'm blessed to call it my home!
We hope you have a wonderfuly 4th of July spent with loved ones! ~♥ The 5 Moms
