I've never been the most patriotic American (unless you count being head over heels in love with Captain America), and especially not since I spent four months in Europe. But there's something about the Fourth of July that gets me, that makes me want to embrace all of the quintessential American things.....except for drinking beer. I had to work hard to find things in my wardrobe that were like red, white, and blue and ended up with pink, white, and blue. I feel like Steve Rogers would approve of the thought, don't you?
I had a pretty low-key Fourth with my parents -- we hung out all day and then went out to a local park to play Forbidden Island, eat a yummy picnic, watch fireworks + Despicable Me 2 afterwards. We had true Texas iced tea (so sugary!), saw skydivers, and had a really amazing time.
I'd love to hear what you did on the Fourth -- even if you're not in America! What did you do with your Friday? Let me know in the comments.
