Hello! I hope your week is going well. Are you ready for a nice relaxing day tomorrow? A barbecue? A wonderful picnic with your family? Decorating a bike or a wagon with your kids or grand kids for the local parade? Or heading out to the fireworks?
My grandparents would help us decorate our bikes or wagons and we would go to a parade, and show off our handiwork and then eat ice cream, have some cotton candy and then go home to a barbeque.
Frequently these barbeques were out at my aunt and uncles cottage on Pewaukee Lake, where we would spend the day swimming, out on the boat and of course playing with the cousins and eating hot dogs, hamburgers, and all the fixings.
Every holiday began and ended up with two sets of fireworks! The first on the third of July, and the second on the fourth!
In Milwaukee the biggest fireworks are on the 3rd of July and they are called, “the Big Bang”, they are set off near Lake Michigan and set to classical music. It is a wonderful day; families come and spend the day having picnics with their kids, floating boats in the duck pond, and enjoying all of the things Lake Park and Lake Michigan have to offer.
The second fireworks are usually local, and they are on a much smaller scale and held by your own suburb.
Tomorrow we are spending the day at a barbeque, and then watching A Capitol Fourth on PBS. We get to hear the National Symphony Orchestra, Russell Watson, and many more musicians perform and take in the fabulous fireworks from the National Mall in Washington, D.C!
I hope that you enjoy your holiday! If you are traveling be safe on the roads, stay cool and enjoy your time with your family and friends! After all isn’t that what it is all about?
Enjoy your day!
