We will be celebrating the 4th by going to the beach and cooking hamburgers or hot dogs on the grill.
It is a bit difficult to get into the spirit of the 4th of July when you are living in a foreign country. We do have a party that the consulate is putting on tomorrow, but we don’t feel comfortable with all the drinking that is planned.
We have not found any fireworks yet, but we may be able to make that part of our day as well.
The fun thing is to just be together as a family knowing we are from the greatest nation in the world. While we won’t be celebrating with all the hoopla people back home will be, we will still have our own fun.
Here’s to wishing everyone a happy 4th of July.
