We’re off to Maryland today so I haven’t sorted through July 4th pictures and memories just yet. I’ll update more when we’re back on our home turf. (M.D. I’ve noted that you wish to be featured in the Holiday wrap up post. Never fear, I’m on it!)
I will say this: I dig having our town’s festivities on the 3rd of July because it makes for a very stress-free fourth. We hung around and acted out our best Lazy Sunday routines on Monday the 4th while the rest of the country scrambled around from beach to bar-b-que. My kids may someday wonder why everyone is frantic on the 4th and we’re finished the night of the 3rd, but until they start fighting the tradition, we’re sticking with our day early celebrations.
Hope your 4th was great-no matter what day you chose to celebrate it!
