Question: How will you be spending Independence Day? Does your family have any special traditions?
My Answer: Our family along with my sisters and their families and my in-laws will be getting together for our annual Fourth of July potluck barbecue picnic. I usually host but with my recent surgery, I wasn’t feeling quite up to it this year, so my sister will be hosting at her house this year. Everyone brings a dish and there’s always plenty of food…. way too much food! It is our tradition to have red white and blue jello cups and homemade ice cream every year. This year hubby is making vanilla ice cream and also peach ice cream. Have I mentioned he makes the BEST homemade ice cream ever? My nephews usually shoot off fireworks after we eat. The cousins have also been known to have a water balloon fight on this holiday. I think the high is supposed to be 101 this year on the 4th so it’s going to be a hot one! I like to decorate my house on this patriotic holiday so you’ll see lots of red white and blue around here.
How are you planning to celebrate July 4th this year?
