July 4th Traditions (And Things to Do When It's 115 Degrees)
Sure, we have a barbecue, watch fireworks from a distance, display the Flag, and we take a few moments to be thankful for all of our freedoms. Growing up outside of Chicago, we always went to a parade in the center of town. Now living in the Arizona desert, there's not much of a town center, per se, and did I mention it's usually around 115 degrees this time of year? Sitting outside for any length of time is not that much fun unless you're sitting in the middle of a pool. Which we do quite a lot too.
Do you have any traditions outside the norm? And to those in the States, hope you've had a wonderful and safe Fourth of July!
