This year, we enjoyed an easy, relaxing Fourth of July. The folks had a little BBQ at their house and my brother and sis-in-law were so sweet to get the Hubby a birthday cake. One of my favorite memories of the day was seeing my parents sitting in the patio with their feet up and just listening to them tell me their childhood food memories.
We watched fireworks from a shopping mall parking lot and it was packed with people from the nearby neighborhoods. I love seeing how our community comes together.
