The years we lived in Louisiana I can remember watching the fireworks on the levee and shooting off our own at the same time, watermelon, bbqing, and much more.
The best Fourth of July I've ever had though? The year 2003 when me, my Mom and Dad and my nephew Preston(who 13 at the time..he's 19 now) spent the 4th in Washington, DC. We did the whole DC parade and then Capitol Lawn concert experience where Dolly Parton sang and fireworks were shot off the Mall.
Talk about AWESOME! I had watched it for years on PBS but to actually be there was too cool for words. It's something my nephew still talks about. Picture below...
The 2nd best 4th? Last year. Me, my friend Kara and Dana spent the weekend in the mountains of NC -- near where I was this past weekend.
Kara and I got our hike on and we enjoyed good wine, food and fireworks on Grandfather Mountain.
What is your favorite 4th of July memory?
