Christmas is my favorite holiday, but July 4th is a contender. It's just encompasses the heart of American summer time to me. Everyone in red, white, and blue, watching fire works, cook outs, friends and family together... It's just such a cool experience. Both my kiddos sat quietly through the fireworks show. We had to bribe them with chocolate and jelly beans to keep them occupied leading up to the fireworks, but it was a great night.
