As a kid living in the Texas countryside, 4th of July was always one of my favorites day of the year.  We would swim all day, live off hot dogs and homemade banana ice cream, run around barefoot to the neighbor’s house and stay up way past bedtime to watch the fireworks.  It was truly one of those magical days of childhood- What’s not to love!  Now as an adult with two girls of my own, we are creating our own 4th of July traditions.  We spend the holiday in a cabin nestled high in the rocky mountains.  Our day starts with a parade, followed by a party in the park.  There are hot dogs, ice cream, races, and kids running around barefoot playing tag and climbing rocks.  We usually head home for nap time, and around dusk bundle up and go to the park with some hot cocoa to watch the fireworks.  Last year, Liza’s face lit up and I could truly see the magic of it all in her bright blue eyes.  I can’t wait to do it again with her this year!

Since I’m usually chasing Liza or laying out on a blanket in the park,  I keep my outfit for the 4th pretty simple.  I added some patriotic flare to an old favorite top and pair of cutoffs with this red bandana, and finished it off with these blue lace up sandals.  Between boat rides and family dinners over the long weekend, be sure to take advantage of some great sales listed below.  Have a safe and happy Fourth of July!
