Today, as I recover from a weekend of celebrating (fireworks on Friday, July 3rd, and a big BBQ on July 4th), the Attractions bloggers have been sending me their favorites from this weekend. Check out the variety and let us know how you celebrated this year. Did you have a special parade in your hometown? How about a fireworks display that seems to go on for hours? Or maybe a house or two that really got into the spirit decorating? Share your stories!
Linda, at Minnemom, wrote about flag displays on Main Streets in many towns around the U.S.
Over at Hole in the Donut, Barbara wrote about July 4th celebrations in Sarasota, Florida, including some great fireworks displays:
As part of State Park Sunday at Family Adventure Guidebooks, Bridget wrote about visiting Wilder Ranch State Park in California, and experiencing the 4th of July as pioneers did (including ice cream!)
Jody, at Iowa Geek, writes about how her family celebrated the 4th in the heartland, including BBQs, naps and fireworks. She also includes a brief history lesson at Celebrating our Independence.
Shari, aka Crazedmommy, wrote about her experience with Friends, Family and Fireworks on the Fourth in sunny Florida, including the joy of purchasing fireworks with her husband.
Carol made us all jealous with a wonderful post about a 4th of July date night in New York City. She brings back romance (with fireworks!)
And naturally, over at my food blog, I wrote about celebrating the 4th with food! Yumm, cherry pie!
