July 4th Celebration

The fourth of July is one of my favorite holidays. Each year, it is spent at my parent’s beach house with family and friends, in a weekend celebration. In the morning, coolers are packed and the boat is loaded with towels, bocce ball and fishing poles. We make our way to the island and enjoy a day in the sun filled with many laughs. Upon returning to the cottage in the late afternoon, we enjoy one of the greatest summer pleasures—an outdoor shower, then settle on the front porch with snacks and a cocktail to watch the sun set. The evening is spent grilling, visiting with neighbors and watching the seemingly endless fireworks.

This year my dad turns 60, so the celebration will be extra special. We will all pitch in with the planning and lucky for us the internet is bursting with inspiring ideas!
