The Fourth of July is one of the best holidays of the year for me personally. For a lot of the other holidays, the major part takes place at a certain time of the day, but not on July 4th. July 4th is a daylong celebration filled with delicious food, fun games, and great company. To cap off the daylong celebration, there are beautiful firework shows going on at local parks and beaches. The BBQ is my favorite part of the whole thing by far! Living in Southern California, our family likes to spend the day at the beach, and I couldn’t think of any better place to spend it. We usually have family and friends over and it is just a great time! There is always so much going on. We got Cornhole tournaments, spikeball tournaments, people are throwing the Frisbee around, and some of us just like to lounge and enjoy the camaraderie. There is a parade that goes on not too far from the beach house so we all ride our bikes over and check it out. It always draws a big crowd, and the kids absolutely love it. We always make sure to decorate everything in red, white, and blue, but this year we are even adding some of the Penless American Flag stickers to the Fourth of July bash. We have prizes for all the tournament game winners and we decided to have some extra fun with it and attach a video to the prizes. This 4th of July will be one for the books!
