  2. For the forth of july, we usually go up north to our cabin. Sure the view of the fireworks is mostly blocked by the trees but that's not really the point. I have so many memories from my childhood of standing on plastic lawn chairs in my pajamas watching the fireworks with a bunch of strangers. In the morning, everyone would roll out of bed (most over 21 with a hangover) and there would be some uncle of mine, in long johns, making pancakes, toast, hash browns, scrambled eggs, and who knows what else. And now I'm rambling...Well, those headbands are SO cute!

  3. We go to a friend's neighborhood every year. They set up music and kids jump houses on the golf course. We all bring a picnic with enough to share with others and we watch the beautiful fireworks display as soon as it's dark. Oh, and everyone wears multiple glow bracelets :)

  4. We go to my parents lake house for a barbeque. Everyone decorates their boats and we have a parade! Always good food and fun!

  5. We dress the kids in their red, white and blue best. Attend a local parade and then picnic on our "once-a-year-fried-chicken". After dark the kids light up their glow sticks and necklaces. We end the day with fireworks at a local park. We always look forward to this summer celebration as a family. :)

  6. Every year, we pick up new stuff from the market to grill and try out! We hardly ever grill outside- so it's a treat for us. we spend the day together eating yummy new foods, swimming and watching the fireworks. This year will be a little different being in a new town- a parade and Fair on the Square and a laser light show!

  11. My favorite holiday! We usually cook out and then go by the lake and watch fireworks, come home and shoot off our own. It is also our wedding anniversary. 3 years this year! And it will be our Little one's very first!

  12. We usually get up early to go to the 4th of July Parade, then we picnic all day and go to a local park for fireworks that happen at dusk. However, this year we're doing my husband's family tradition of going to the cabin in Colorado!

  15. We start the day by raising the American flag that covered a WWII hero, he was our friend and neighbor. We then pray for all those families who are missing a loved one and give thanks for those serving so we may have our freedoms. We watch the float that is stored in the barn across from us get built and then take in the local parade. No boom booms for us, as my nephew calss them, too scary and too late.

  20. Our 4th of Julys are normally pretty laid back and it all depends on my husband's schedule to what we do! We usually go to the park to watch the fireworks every year - one of my favorite things to do!

  21. I thought I already posted, but it looks like it never went through...

    We live overseas, so in we spend the days leading up to the 4th hitting all the grocery stores looking for a taste of Americana. Last year we paid way too much for a package of hot dogs and a can of blueberries for a pie.

    This year we will actually be in America July 4, and I can't wait to introduce my daughter to the tradition of fireworks and cook-outs!

  22. Growing up all the neighbors gathered at the pool, ate fried chicken and swam til we were prunes. Now we take our kids to the neighborhood pool for pool games and water slides. We still swim til we are pruny.

  23. On the 4th, my family and I buy some sparklers, get a pizza, and go sit in a grassy area and watch a fireworks display a local church puts on! My kids love it!

  24. Well this will be the first one my husband has been home in about 3 years sooo maybe we will go to the freedom fest here in San Diego and watch the fireworks!:)

  25. We usually get together with friends..my favorite traditions involve being with family but that has not happened for several years as my mom does a major church project during the month of July and is not home. When we go to home for the 4th of July, we go to a parade, have snow cones, do fireworks on the farm and then watch the city firework show.

  31. As a Marine family we've always had big bbq's, thanked our overseas troops a few extra times, and set off firecrackers in the driveway. Last year however we were blessed with a July 1st baby girl, so this year we will be doing a huge girly patriotic birthday bash! :)

  32. We attend the Fourth of July parade in our town. Than we pack up the barbecue, food, tents, chairs, blankets and the family and head to our town's beach park. We spend the day eating, going to the carnival, hanging out at the beach, listening to bands and just playing with about 3,000 other people from our town. Than we snuggle in for the firework show. It is a great day, we look forward to it every year.

  33. Haven't done it in years since we're not all together, but growing up my dad would do fireworks down by the lake & we'd have cherry pit spitting contests! It was always a blast!

  34. These are so adorable!!!
    We have yet to secure traditions with our own kids, but growing up, my parents always coordinated a 4th of July Treasure Hunt for us. We would follow the clues they had written out, looking in all the different hiding places the clues led us to, and we found candy, little goodies, and at the end, a big toy! We looked forward to it every year. Then we would drive into the "big city" of St. Louis and watch the fireworks.
    One of my favorite childhood memories :)

  37. My husband and I take our girls to a huge 4th of July party hosted on the Gulf of Mexico in a little town called Aripeka! Our parents live there and one of their neighbors host it every year....neighbors, friends and pretty much the entire town gather and pot luck together! It's an awesome time for the kids and the adults and the best part its in one of the most beautiful parts of the west coast of Florida! We really look forward to it every year!

  42. For the last three years we went 5+ hours up north and went to a parade there with only like 100+ people in town. It was so adorable. This year we'll be hitting the cities parade. Busy and hot, but still fun! ♥

  43. Our traditions have changed a lot since we had our three babies. We never make it to fireworks anymore but we do go to a local festival and let the kids run around and eat yummy grilled food at home. One of these days we will see fireworks again...
