Our traditional July 4th consists of food, fireworks, and fun over at Mommer's. Since there is a ban on fireworks, it just won't be the same. But, we will still have some fun. We put up a little swimming pool for the girls to play in. They loved it! Holland wasn't scared at all and Britton had a blast kicking and splashing. Holland was so protective of Britton in the pool. She kept hold of Britton's floaty just to make sure Britton was okay and had her toys to play with.
I made Big Red ice cream which is one of my family's traditional July 4th foods. I also made a 4th of July cake (recipe from plainchicken.com) with Mom's help. The cake looks like a flag when you cut into it. So cool!
