I hope you have a Fantastic, Patriotic, Fireworks-filled 4th of July!!  My family usually has a BBQ and then, since my kids are small, we watch the 4th of July celebration on NBC.  I cannot wait until my kids are old enough to go to the fireworks!!  (Also, it gets dark really late so they are usually in bed.)
