July 4th Fun

The 4th of July has to be one of my favorite holidays. There is just something so relaxing about this day. Perhaps it is that my kids are always so well entertained, or that it's one day I know I don't have to be in charge of dinner, or (and I think is the winner) it's that I feel such a peace about this great country in which we live.

So, what are your plans for the 4th? I found a great list of events at the Review Journal's website. I am posting all the FREEBIES here, but if you are looking for something more, click on this link. I hope you have a safe and happy 4th of July!!
