July 4th - Pinterest Style

Colorado is on fire, almost literally. Homes are burning, precious memories are turning into ash and the thought of risking fireworks next week is foolish.

We usually go to the Parker, Co. Fireworks show. We have a great bluff we back the truck up to and watch the amazing show curled up in the bed of the truck with one another. It’s magical and for the past two years, we haven’t been able to do it because the risk is too high.

So what do we do?

We celebrate as any true American would. We BBQ, make cheesy desserts that are red white and blue all the while being with one another and enjoying the chance we have to live in this beautiful country. I’ve only been to two other countries so far, however I can say, I’m a “red-white-blue runs through my veins” kinda girl.
