Happy 4th of July

You have to love a nation that celebrates its
independence every July 4, not with a parade of guns, 
tanks, and soldiers...but with family picnics where kids
throw Frisbees, the potato salad gets iffy, and the flies die from
happiness.  You may think you have overeaten,
but it is patriotism.
-Erma Bombeck 

4 for the 4th...Some fun ideas to help you celebrate:

Who doesn't love rice krispy treats?!  You can find the recipe for these over at Lil' Luna.

My little people still aren't big fans of the big fireworks because of the noise, but they LOVE sparklies  (aka sparklers).  I can wait to try this idea to keep the sparks from hitting their hands!

I don't know about you, but my kiddos would love this!!  Would be a neat experiment to do with the kids too!  The drink with the highest sugar content stays on the bottom.  You can find a lot of different blog posts about making these, but this is where I found this one.

I'm really hoping to get a good picture of all of us so I make a page like this on from The Pink Room

So go out and enjoy your day!! Stay safe, stay cool and make lots of great memories!!
