That's a lovely post Eastcoastmom! I hope yours is nice too.
We are having some friends and family over to grill out later today. It's beautiful now, but we have had thunderstorms everyday for almost a week. I hope the weather holds out.
I put out all my patriotic decorations, flags, stars, streamers, spinners, etc. It looks nice.
I had considered going to watch the fireworks either downtown or at the lake, but with the weather so iffy, have decided to just watch them on tv. I'm sure the neighborhood will have their fair share later anyway.
