Are you staying home or going out of town for the 4th?

We decided to stay home this year and have a very quiet 4th, no one visiting, not going to anoyones house. we are jsut going to BBQ witht he kids then go to the park for the fireworks. We are only buying sparklers this year and nothing else. Last year we had a huge party and had lots of fun but this year we all wanted something a bit more quiet.

So what are your plans?

  • this will be the first year we don't spend it with my family, bbq-ing or pooling. we just moved 4hrs away, and well,..we know no one. so we'll try to hit up the local fireworks show at the lake close by, and call it a day!

  • It is our sons third birthday so we are going to my parents a couple hours away for a bbq/birthday party/ 4th of July celebration. Our son thinks all the fireworks are to celebrate his birthday! :)
