I love the 4th of July. As a kid it meant heading out to our cottage on the pond, roasting marshmallows and watching the mini fireworks display reflect over the water. I’m happy to report that our Independence Day celebration won’t be too different, minus the pond and the fireworks (too dangerous for the little ones). There will definitely be grilling, some running through the sprinkler, and some s’mores. And let’s not forget relaxing–it is officially summer now after all!
