New Fourth of July Frills!!!

Kids. Fireworks. Parades. Ice cream...

The Fourth of July is a day for family fun. Whether you're taking a trip or looking for fireworks close to home, you're bound to have a fabulous time!

I (Ashley) feel so LUCKY that I live on a golf course. Not because I like people peeking into my backyard every five minutes, but because I have an amazing view of the fireworks that the farm nearby shoots off every Fourth of July. We don't have to pack up a cooler and drive to see them anywhere, they are right in my backyard! Glow Sticks and Patriotic Treats are all we need to have a good time!

Here's a photo of some of my family last year as we waited for the fireworks to start:

One of my (Becky's) favorite things is fireworks...maybe a little weird, but I grew up going to the BYU stadium for the 4th of July.  Watching the most spectacular firework show kind of spoiled me!  Last year we celebrated the 4th of July in Gallup with all my husband's family.  At the time we were not allowed to set off our own fireworks in AZ, so I was excited to buy fireworks.  I was like a little kid in a candy shop:)!   Let's just say between all the different families we had a TON of fireworks...the good stuff too!! That night the moms and  kids set up their chairs while the guys went across the street to the empty field.  We had our own fabulous firework show.....everything was great until a firework shot off at us....two different times!! Luckily no one was hurt, but my boys are still a little scared when they hear we are going to do fireworks!!  Can't wait to see what this year brings!  ---Becky---

In honor of this fabulous holiday, we added lots of new free patriotic blog background and banner designs for you to show your love for your country this year!
Here are some previews below (You can click the images to take you to the Fourth of July category. :)

Don't forget to grab the matching banner for the design to make it complete! Here's some samples below:

Have a BRIGHT holiday!

  1. Oh fun...I really enjoyed reading what you like about 4th of July :) :) When I was still in grad school, I lived in stu dent housing. My bedroom window as well as kitchen patio faced the elementary school football field. They had fireworks there one year and it was fantastic. It was like having rock star parking...and the fireworks were fabulous :) :) Here where I live now...thousands of people from all over the valley come to this one baseball stadium and the nearby area..People will literally put their chairs on the sidewalk..both sides of the street for a mile or see the fireworks. It's really neat to see...the fireworks and all the people :) :) Love and hugs from Oregon, Heather :)

  2. I love where we live for that reason to Ash! But I've also been to BYU's Stadium of Fire and that's really fun too. I really miss all of the fireworks that my family in UT would light so glad we finally can do a few here.
