Celebrating the 4th of July

I’m a little under the weather….have been since late last week. We won’t be doing anything fun to celebrate the 4th this year, so I’ll reminisce about all the fun we had last year! We had an awesome, low-key celebration at our house with friends.

We kept it healthy and simple which made it the best way to celebrate. If we were having a party this year, I’d add these fun cups that Martha Stewart demonstrated on the Today Show:

We also try to hit our favorite New England beach town Rockport every year on the 4th (thankfully my husband is taking our girls there today while I rest). Check out a post from last year about a day trip to Rockport. But as you know, New England has so many amazing places to go for day trips. I write another post about Portsmouth, NH. 

If you’re looking to check out some fireworks, check out this great list from Metrowest Mamas!

Whatever you do, please be safe, enjoy, and be thankful!
