Fourth of July Ideas....

The Fourth is just around the corner.

It happens to be one of my favorite times of the year!
 The whole day just makes me happy from sparklers at night... red, white, and blue popping everywhere, and just the low-key, down home fun we have throughout the day.
Darren is usually busy baling hay, so we just stick around here to help and watch the fireworks from our back porch all over the valley at night.
During the day, I usually have some fun things planned from an all you can eat hot dog buffet to fun little crafts for the kids.
And of course a few fireworks!

Here are some of my favorite ideas...courtesy of Pinterest...my newest love.

I always make a flag cake, but I think the kids might like this idea even more!

I thought these ice cream sprinkle sandwiches looked so simple and delicious.

I've heard so many things about this Pineterest. I'm going to finally check it out.
I'm in love with all the same ideas as you are it seems. I could totally pull off the ice cream sandwiches;)

I love the 4th too. We can literally watch the fireworks from the highschool from our front porch and it's a wonderful thing to never have to leave home to find family fun:)

Have a Happy and Safe One!
