We had a fun time this year. We ate BBQ which is something that we don't normally do. We drove out to watch the laser show, but we started way too late, and ended up having to attempt to go a different direction to watch the fireworks. Our original plan for the day was to attend an outdoor concert, but that went bust. Anyway this weekend was truly a wonderful one where we spent time with family, ATE, played games, and went for a drive. Not a bad holiday at all! How was yours this year?

It was great..thanks. We went to a fireworks show in the park. There was a band playing up until the time in which they cut loose the fireworks. I took my portable chair and was very comfortable..lol..There was a huge crowd but I got in and out fairly easy. That's always pleasant. Before we went we had BBQ ribs for dinner.....yummm. Glad your 4th was nice too.

I live in England and next year I hope to be able to spend 4th July in the USA. I shall hopefully be spending the last week or so of June in Canada. I am planning to visit Vancouver, Seattle and the Rockies. It was my birthday yesterday and I am unwell after my baby's birth. I went on a gentle and quiet outing to a coastal town. I walked slowly along a Victorian pier. Then my mum drove to a play park where my toddler son loved playing on the slide, swings, roundabout and in the sand pit. I came home feeling really tired. I have been told that I need to rest for six weeks but I just had to go out on my birthday.

Hello hdjohnson , all in all my 4th of July went pretty well. I and my family had been invited to a barbeque by my sisters in-laws. The food was great and after that I came home and turned on the television and watched the fireworks being filmed by the NBC station that was going on in Lake Union. It ended just a few minutes ago and it was nice.

Yeah, I watched it all for only a second or two on television, but I was working on the PC last night and didn't want to end that.

I'm british but it didnt stop us from having a great 4th July. We all went round to my mother in laws and my other half did a BBQ whilst we all had loads to drink and we sat out on the porch till the early hours of the morning. It was nice for everyone to get together :)
