One more month until the Fourth of July!
Break out the grills! Bring on the fireworks! Sit your butt down in a lawn chair with an ice-cold lemonade and just snooze until it’s nighttime! Now, that’s my kind of Fourth of July.
It’s not too early to start thinking of what your plans might be: concert in the park? How about a beach barbecue? Or perhaps just a nice quiet day before the nighttime festivities commence?
My grandparents have a tradition of honoring servicemen on the Fourth of July. After all, it is Independence Day, and also honors those in our military. Well, if you’ve got a loved one coming home for the Fourth of July, or want to show some small-town appreciation, consider creating an outdoor banner that you can hang in a public space.
Now, other members of my family like to party. Hard. Not ‘hard’ as in drinking, but ‘hard’ as in a mile-long buffet stuffed into someone’s living room for over 40 people.
However, since we’ve got family coming from all across Southern California, it’s going to be a little difficult for them to find us, especially in an unfamiliar area. So, I’ve got a plan to make a Fourth of July banner that we can hang along the gazebo. Also, we’ll procure some yard signs to point the way from the parking lot. It’s a big park.
So, if you’re planning an extra-large shindig this Independence Day, or want to show your love for our armed forces, say it with an outdoor banner this July!
