We had a wonderful Fourth of July party with other Americans in our town and as I looked around my very full house I was overwhelmed by a feeling of gratitude for our wonderful nation. Even though we miss our families terribly, I am so thankful that we got to spend the day with new and old friends at a very festive 4th of July party.
And in case anyone was wondering- we ended up doing the confetti rockets, the diet coke + mentos explosions and found some “birthday candles” at a local dollar store-type store that worked very well as sparklers (seriously can’t imagine how they are safe on a cake, but everyone loved them.) It was perfect!
Happy Fourth, everyone! Hope your day is fun and festive!
