I love the 4th of July weekend. Love the weather, the picnics, the potlucks, the parades, the weekend getaways, the beaches and ofcourse the fireworks. For the last couple years, our July 4th weekends have been quiet as the first year we were back home in India and last year A was scared of the fireworks.
This year it’s going to be exciting as we are going to be a big jing bang. My folks and my grandma are visiting us. My sister lives close by. So we are all going for a day trip to the beach and then check out the parade in the morning and the fireworks in the evening. What I really miss now, is the spirit of DC during that weekend, specially the parade and hustle bustle.
Anyways I am looking forward to the weekend. I sampled a small fruit platter for the holiday, the 4th of July fruit flag platter, turned out to be pretty decent. I could have done a better job though by slicing the strawberries into halves and circular banana discs. This could be a good idea if you are going for a potluck or want to serve fruits for morning breakfast. Have a great weekend and enjoy the holiday.
