Star of the 4th of July...

I love the 4th of July! It is the one time of the year that I get to visit with so many of my relatives. For the past 40 years my mother and father have hosted a barbecue for all of my relatives and sometimes, some of their friends. We have been known to have over a 150 people to join us for barbecue on that day! I am so thankful to my parents for encouraging family traditions with my children so that they may know their extended family so well!
Question~ Does your children know their Great-Great Aunts and Uncles as well as their distant cousins?

You will find this piece and previous pieces FOR SALE at Vintage Village!

Yevette! Me too! We love the 4th. My daughter and her family live way up-north mich. in Glen Arbor and they host a grand family day on the 4th!. The best parade ever...with more candy tossed then Halloween! The Grands all go crazy at the parade, such fun. I paint faces and decorate hairdos with sparkly stars and everyone gets a flag to wave...They even toss hotdogs!!! all cooked wrapped and ready to eat, It's a hoot. We all look forward to it every year..After the parade we gather at the lake for a day of swimming and picknicking...Hope your time together is just wonderful, thanks for sharing, xoxo~Kathy @ Sweet Up-North Mornings...
