In our neighborhood we have lots of neighbors who set of fireworks. They usually start several days prior to the 4th so we decided that we join in the fun. Our little display was not anything like the neighbors, but it was satisfying for our crowd and definitely wetted our whistle for what we could get for next year.
I really love our annual cookout. It seems to get better each year. We always add something different and new, but always have the crowd favorites. I have already looked ahead for next year to start planning. Independence Day is truly a day or independence for our country so that we can reflect and celebrate with those that we love and care for the most our family and friends.
I hope that your 4th of July was an enjoyable as mine was.
