Only a few more days until we hit the 4th! How crazy is that? I feel like I blinked and June has just flown by!
Each year on the 4th of July my family has always gone out to watch the Salt Lake Bees baseball game. With baseball being a made-in-America sport, it works perfectly for the 4th. And the awesome firework show that they do at the end of the game is just the icing on top! This year, however, the Bees are going to be doing an away game on the 4th, so we are headed to a game on Saturday instead. That leaves Monday, the 4th, wide open. For the first time in years I’ve actually had to think about what we should do for the holiday! I’ve brainstormed for a few days now, and put together a list of fun activities to do with your families on America’s Birthday.
Go to a baseball game: If you have a team playing that day, head on over! A hot dog, snow cone and a good game all scream ‘Murica.
Host a BBQ: This is an oldie, but goodie! If this is your usual activity, try mixing it up a bit by hosting it somewhere new. Try out a new park, rent one of those big inflatable water slides for the kids, and challenge each family coming to bring a patriotic dish.
Head to the beach for a picnic: You don’t have to live by the ocean for this one, find a lake, or even just set up a picnic in your backyard.
Go boating: Have all the different families pitch in to rent a boat for the day. Pull the kids on a tube behind the boat, waterski, kneeboard, or just relax on the water!
Put together a neighborhood firework show: Even if just a few neighbors bring their own fireworks, you’re guaranteed to have a much longer show than you would if it was just your family.
Find a parade to watch that morning: I’d say just about every large city should have a parade running the morning of the 4th. Make sure to bring blankets to mark your space, an umbrella for some shade, and lots of water to keep cool.
Those are just a few ideas, there are many many more fun ways that you can spend the holiday.
What are you doing for the 4th of July?
