Friend Makin Monday - 4th of July

Hello Friends. It seems like it's been so long since I've participated in this and I have to say I missed it.
Today Shawn over at Seriously is hosting FMM and in honor of July 4th she has is asking about our 4th plans.

What are you doing this July 4th?

In the morning Caleb and I are going to the Dublin parade and Jamison and Rondell and going to Home Depot to work on their monthly project. That evening we are going to our church's 4th of July event, Food Fun and Fireworks. This is our church's biggest outreach event and it is a ton of fun. They have inflatable slides and bounce houses, rides for kids, animals and food. Then you can sit and see the Gahanna fireworks from the church's parking lot. We've only been once before but we may have to add this as our thing to do on the 4th.

What is your favorite dish to pass when attending a 4th of July party or summer barbecue?

If I was going to a cookout I'd probably take my strawberry/pretzel dessert because it's red...and yummy (and I'm seeing now that I've never posted this recipe so I'll have to do that Thursday for Joanna's food carnival).

Do you have any July 4th traditions?

We don't...but I'd like to establish some. I love traditions and having something to look forward to for holidays.

Share your favorite July 4th picture.

Sorry, no pictures. I don't believe I have any from July 4th. I will have plenty this year, I'm sure and in the years to come, so stay tuned.

Be sure to stop by Shawn's and tell us all about your plans.

I love the 4th. Hope you have fun.
kjPS - the book I'm reading now is called Sarahs Key - love it!

Sounds like a great day is planned! WE don't usually have big plans, and with the time change, it's so hard to stay up for fireworks at 10pm! We usually sit around our campfire and have our own fireworks! Can't wait to see some photos :)

I'd love to see that strawberry pretzel dessert recipe! I recenly had one for the first time, and I was a bit aprehensive about trying it. Pretzels just seemed so odd to have in it. But it was great and the crunch and saltiness of the pretzels was what made that dish. Please share☺

BBQ's, fireworks, little kids everywhere, ice cold lemonade, laughter, and that really good kind of exhaustion. In no particular order.

Jessica said...

I hope that you and your family have a happy 4th of July...and that you share some of that dessert! I think I'll have to come back and get the recipe! Sounds good!
