The 4th of July is usually the beginning of some summertime fun at our house. It's nice to have a three day weekend to relax since we usually stay in town. When my boys were younger we would host a barbecue with some good friends of ours. It was awesome, the boys would play and eat treats while we relaxed and visited over drinks on the deck. At nightfall we would shoot off fireworks. No big plans this year.... the boys are all grown up our neighbors are going on a trip up north. It will be a quiet weekend. My hubby and boys are getting the boat ready for our upcoming vacation to the cabin. They're fixing something, but for the life of me, I don't know what it's called. Something that the boat needs to run... We didn't buy any fireworks this weekend since we are planning on catching a display somewhere on the 4th. I am stocking up on some barbecue goodies for my guys.... I'll make something red, white and bluish. ... make my loaded baked potato salad and grill something wonderful! It's also fun to pull out some of my summertime decorations. My flip flop table runner and tea towel are some of my summertime favorites to decorate with. The flip flop design is a free pattern! It's a quick and easy pattern and makes a great hostess gift.
Some areas will be a bit wet for the 4th, so if you need a fun weekend project. Both of these designs would be great to work on this weekend.
Have a wonderful 4th of July,
