things to do on the fourth of july.

Happy almost Fourth of July!
Independence Day is one of my favorite holidays you guys.
I don't know if it's just the nostalgic summer days, BBQ picnics, romantic fireworks or what-
but I just love it all. 
So today I wanted to share some fun Fourth of July date ideas that are fun for you and your love- or the whole fam too!
As you can see from these photos, Liam is very patriotic and can't wait to celebrate America!

Fourth of July day time ideas:

- Scout out your home town parade!
- If it's hot out, do a fun ice cream crawl to a bunch of your fav dessert spots!
- have a patriotic picnic decked out with red, white and blue dishes!
- Rent a cabana poolside at a local resort, hello staycation!
- Get up early and head to the beach- make sure and snag a bonfire pit for a BBQ!
- Rent bikes and do a food tour near your closest downtown area!
- Have a water party- grab a slip and slide, water balloons and let the kiddos run wild!
- Go on a road trip to the closest small town near yah and just explore the area!
- Plan a quick camping trip for the day!

Oh and PS make sure you keep your pets safe! 
There's always pets who get loose and lost when they hear the fireworks going off!
