The fourth of July has always been one of my favorite holidays. When I was a kid I remember having the big barbeque with friends and family. We had a pool and we swam all day. (wait 20 minutes after eating or you’ll drown) Then we’d all go to the park for a big public fireworks show. (oos and ahhs) Great times! Now we always go out of town for the weekend. (The dog always runs away so now we just drive him). This year we’re going to the mountains for four days. Not the excitement of younger days but still one of my favorite holidays. Any one else want to share their plans and or memories?
