Happy 4th of July! Our celebration begins early this morning with a road race around the lake (I'll be encouraging the participants, but R will be running), followed by a community party at the finish line in the park. After that, we'll take a walk around the arts and crafts festival set up at the end of the lake.
The parade steps off mid-afternoon, then it's back home for a family barbecue. Our extended family will gather for food, swimming, and boating. Later in the evening we'll roast marshmallows over the fire and make s'mores. The grand finale is always the fireworks display over the lake.
I love Independence Day, and our town goes all-out for its celebration!
