When I was a kid, for the 4th of July we always went to the front lawn of our church building for a flag raising ceremony, patriotic hymns, and a breakfast. There were a few years where the breakfast was more of a snack so my dad started taking us kids to go get donuts afterward at a donut shop near our house.
To this day I go get a donut on the 4th of July because, tradition.
Depending on what state I have lived in, I usually prefer to not be home for holidays. It’s always exciting to hit the road and take a trip to see family and celebrate with them.
Hot air balloons at the Freedom Festival in Provo is soo worth going to! I’m not a morning person at all but some things are just worth getting up early for.
One year we were up in Idaho with our families for the 4th and they did a bike decorating contest, bike parade, some speakers, music and …breakfast!
Then we went over to my sister’s place and joined them for a parade.
In the afternoon it is hot hot hot so we opt for seeing a movie or swimming. Usually, the movie wins out since it’s easier to find a theater than a pool, depending on what state we happen to be in at the time.
I’m all about food and 4th of July is no exception. Burgers are fun but sometimes we switch it up with kabobs and other favorites.
