Things I Love Thursday- The 4th of July!

LOVE these centerpieces!

Anyone who knows me knows that I love all Holidays, and 4th of July is no exception! 

I love that it's warm and we get to wear fun red, white and blue clothes.

I love that we grill out and eat lots of yummy food.

I love that the day usually invloves lots of friends and family.

I love that there are always fun things to do in our area.

I love that the girls get excited to put out the flag.

I love that we get to see fireworks at the end of the fun day!

Who doesn't love girls in matching Holiday dresses?!  These are from T.J. Maxx

We have done lots of different things over the years to celebrate.  Some years we have been in Blowing Rock, NC with my husbands family.  Some years we have had a big cookout at our house with lots of friends, (hot dog eating contest too!).  Last year we walked in the local Americana parade.  And this year, we will be at our pool all day long, (if the rain holds off!). 

If you are in the Dayton area and looking for ideas of what to do, check out the events listed!  There are a TON of things going on in our area this weekend, so there is NO REASON to miss out on all the fun!  Plus, chances are, you will see me at lots of those events!

So tell me, what will you be doing this weekend?  Does your family have Independence Day traditions?  What is your favorite thing to do on this fun summer holiday?

Linking up today with Diaper Diaries!  Check them out here:

  1. I don't usually do much for the 4th of July, but this year I bought us all matching T-shirts and a couple $1 hats. We're going to my parents' house on the 3rd, hoping to see some fireworks. Also making festive cupcakes.

    Love the matching dresses!
