Summertime in America... hot, humid days, baseball, tubing on the river, apple pie, sweet corn and fireworks on the Fourth of July.
Independence Day is just 2 weeks away so it's time to start planning! What a great time to invite family and friends over for a backyard BBQ. A little bit of creativity, a few affordable decorations, a pot luck meal, drinks and ice cream and you are good to go!
My kids are now all teenagers and past the age of bike parades, but when they were small I organized Fourth of July Bike Parades for the local neighborhood kids followed by simple ice cream parties in the backyard. Whether you decorate your house, your backyard, the pool area or just your kids bikes, it's affordable fun and a great way to celebrate our Independence and our American history!
