What are your 4th of July plans??

I think we're either going to stick around home or just go over to a friends house for a bbq and drink fest. They live right on the water and it's always a great time. We just don't know if we want to deal with the crowds and the drive. We were going to go camping but, I have to be back here on the sixth to drive mom to the dr.s and we're heading to Oregon for fun in the sun (or rain) on the 7th. We'll be camping and staying with friends for a week or two then.

Can't wait to hear what you're all going to be doing!!

We're going to my husband's family float house for the weekend to relax and do a little fishing.

We're making the trek to Michigan's upper peninsula. Sheila's parents have a place on a good sized lake, so we're taking the boat up and see how many places I can fish in a week's time... (notice I didn't say anything about how many I manage to catch?? )

July 4 is so much fun where I live. July 3rd there will be a craft fair in town. 10 a.m. on the 4th is the local parade. Everyone (!!) is either in the parade or watching the parade. After the parade, there's an afternoon of old fashioned games in the town park - sack races, egg tosses, balloon tosses, shoe kick, etc. Lots of food for sale - smoked turkey legs, sweets. Then at 5:00 a street dance begins (live band) and they play until dark when the fireworks start. The fireworks are shot off of the mountain. The park will be filled with families on blankets yelling, "Oooooo," "Ahhhhh!" We are lucky to be able to hear the music and see the fireworks from our deck, so hubby will build a fire and we'll watch from home.

Our menu for the 4th is stuffed pork tenderloin (mr c is pure cajun and a GREAT cook!!!), french bread, tossed salad, melons and "make your own" ice cream sundaes. (there might be a little wine and beer flowing, too )

pdswife - it really is a blast. I used to cringe and try to avoid the "hub-bub" but finally decided if you can't beat 'em, join 'em! I really look forward to the holiday now. Everyone has such a good time.

We always celebrate here in our backyard, the kids swim and we just play til dark when we watch fireworks and my son sets off what he bought for my grandsons. We pretty much snack and sit around most of the day. Dinner is hamburgers, hot dogs, corn on the cob, watermelon..and red white and blue triffle During the day it's anything from avocado dip and baguette slices, to chips and salsa, stuffed onions, rice torta, white bread, flattened, coated with cream cheese, a picled okra place on top rolled, coat outside with more cream cheese, roll in parsley or chives and munch Thank you Paula Deen. There is so much food we just groan our way to bed But, heck, it's the 4th. and we celebrate.

We're going to my sisters for the first time in 2 years. They pay for everything. It is our company party too. Swim, fish, go cart, watch fireworks, and just get loud and obnoxious :O)
