4th of July Celebrations

It is hard to believe that it is already July and that this week it is the 4th of July. Picnics, parties, barbeque's, fireworks, camping, parades, and so much more. So many options for fun with family and friends.

 What are your plans? Will you be hosting a barbeque? Enjoying a little sun at the beach?

As of yet we have not finalized our plans but whatever they are they will definitely include a lot of sprinklers and some beautiful fireworks.

I hope you have a great day!


  1. These are stunning photos! Thank you for sharing such dazzling images of the fourth..I'm actually excited to see fireworks again.

  2. I will be with my auntie and cousins in Los Angeles!!!!!!! The circumstances are not that great (my aunt is ill) but at least I will see my family with whom I never get a chance to celebrate holidays. Oh the weather I believe is brutally hot there, and we've been having cool but fabulous whether here. Have a fun celebration my sweet friend! Anita

  3. Good morning Elizabeth!! Your photos are spectacular and really put me in the mood for the fourth! We will be having a quiet holiday at home - my daughter is visiting her boyfriend's family in the Hamptons but then will be home for the weekend so we will celebrate then!

    Have a lovely day! xoxo

  4. It has been raining for weeks here and it will be raining again all this week so whatever we do will be inside unfortunately. Actually the husbands birthday is on the Fourth and we're having a party..woohoo! I hope you enjoy your holiday Elizabeth!


  5. Such a fun post Elizabeth! We will be out of town and I'm looking forward to having some time off! Enjoy your day:) xxleslie

  6. Your images are "wonderfilled" and so inspiring, Elizabeth! The one with the playing cards pinned to the bicycle spokes immediately transported me back to my childhood Summers.

    I will have my whole family together on Thursday!
    Thank you for visiting!
    Happy Fourth of July!

  7. Elizabeth, a beautiful 4th of July collection. Oh how I remember clothes pinning cards to the spokes of my bicycle. I can't believe July is here. I think we will be visiting our daughter. There has to be fireworks!

  8. Hope your weather turns out wonderful.....hear that rain is in the forecast for a lot of the northeast and the humidity is HORRID!! Makes me want to wear a hat all

    To me the 4th always means quality time with family and friends, doing simple old fashioned things like eating outside, maybe biking or boating....and of course watching fireworks!

  9. Well, we have our fireworks a few days early for Canada Day, and I'm always out and about that day in the heart of the city.

    The American ambassador does tend to throw a Fourth of July party at the official residence.
