Savor Summer Day 1: Family Traditions

Posted by   + Show Post

What does your family normally do on the Fourth of July? Do you have a barbecue or travel to see family? What about a camping trip or watching fireworks?

When we were kids, my dad would buy a bunch of fire crackers and my brothers would light them off as they got older. Now we usually go to a family reunion (on my dh's side) around the 4th of July and keep the 4th pretty simple. The neighbors usually light of tons of fireworks, so we just go outside to enjoy them.

We do a BBQ followed by fireworks!

There is an old military base here that closed after WW2. The old parade grounds are encircled by beautiful Victorian houses that were once officers quarters, now private homes. Every year the symphony orchestra plays patriotic music. We take the kids, a picnic, and our chairs, and listen to the music while the kids play. After dark, there are fireworks.

 Sometimes we celebrate the kids birthday. Sometimes we celebrate the 4th of July.

Always we go to watch the fireworks at Greenfield Village. We don't go into the Village but we watch from a very nearby school parking lot.
