We had a BBQ at a friends house. For the first time in ever, our local fireworks were canceled due to poor air conditions. The fireworks usually bring in a crowd of about 40,000 people. There are 158 fires burning in our county alone.
Everyone was at a loss for what to do. All the supermarkets sold out on meats because of all the extra BBQ'ers this year. I love July 4th.
Also I put up a big American flag (the old one was destroyed last Winter), and I read the Declaration of Independence to my kids. What a great piece.
