Organize for July 4th celebrations
Staying Home or Heading Out for July 4th?
Whenever you plan for the July 4th, or any holidays, vacations or just weekend getaways…. you usually always forget something if you aren’t prepared. Right?
We don’t usually do anything real big for July 4th. Our town has a nice firework display that we go to every year. We don’t want to go to some massive display downtown and deal with all the traffic and mess you get into down there. Usually we grill out and then head to the high school. Nice and simple. We’ll also head to the farm on some years and grill out our hotdogs over an open fire.
It was my dog Sadie’s worse holiday of the year. She was so scared of fireworks and for a few days prior to 4th of July and a day or so after, there are always those in the neighborhood setting off their own displays. She was a bundle of nerves! It was will strange this year without her, having to leave with the TV blaring and fans running to help cut the noise of fireworks for her.
You might just be staying at home and grilling out for your family, or some friends for the fourth….but you will still need some supplies you weren’t counting on. Chances are you might be going to some friends house for fireworks , or going on a weekend camping or getaway trip.
Get out Your Paper and Pen and start your list for what you will need to have for your 4th of July celebration. Here are just a few suggestions:
2)Ice – Make your own ahead if there is time!
10)First aid kit
There is the beginning of the list. Of course there is more, but be prepared. Have a fun 4th of July weekend and please be safe if you are going to be messing with fireworks and even sparklers!
Your day/weekend will go much smoother if you have it planned out and aren’t forgetting half the things you need.
