Hi everyone! Have you checked out our website for all the 4th of July Independence Day costumes and decorations? They’re great! This holiday is a great time to get together with family and friends. There are parades, backyard barbeques, picnics, games and the perfect ending to the night with a sparkling display of fireworks. Of course if you’re like me, a nervous wreck with the little ones wanting to get up close and personal with the fireworks! A great way to show support to our men and women in the Armed Forces is by proudly displaying your American Flag or tying yellow ribbons around the trees in your yard. Let them know how proud we are of them and the sacrifices they and their families are making everyday by protecting the “land of the free and the home of the brave”. In trying to explain to my nine year old, Caden why they call it Independence Day I found a great website www.kidsdomain.com that explained it in kids “layman’s terms”. Once Caden grasped the concept, he couldn’t wait to explain it to his six year old sister, Olivia. However, she was more interested in chasing her little cousins around the yard then listening to her brother’s version of our country’s independence! This year July 4th, Independence Day falls on a Wednesday, however, next year, in 2008, the holiday falls on a Friday. I think it makes it easier for anyone that works to enjoy the holiday even more knowing that they don’t have to get up for work the next day. Happy 4th Everyone!!
