Happy 4th Of July – Let’s Have Fun!

Celebrate Our Nation’s Freedom with Family and Good Times

This weekend is a holiday – hence the off-topic blog post.  Mostly because I didn’t want to address a deep-thought issue right before a three day (federal) holiday weekend!  We will likewise be celebrating our nation’s independence with our friends and family, too!  I will be celebrating my father’s birthday (for he’s a yankee doodle dandy) and hugging my family and barbecuing and watching fireworks – lots and lots of fireworks.  Today, I present you with a collection of fun things to do outside and with others – so put the computer away and walk, nay run, to holiday festivities in your own part of the world!  (If you are looking for things in the Pikes Peak region to enjoy, check out this awesome list compiled by visitcos.com : http://www.visitcos.com/colorado-springs-co-july-4th-celebrations )
