Here are some delicious 4th of July recipes to make for your party or family gathering, plus fun activities to do!

Happy 4th of July week!

I hope you’re enjoying a day or two off for the holiday. My kids are out of camp this week, so we’re planning to do all the summery activities: pool, ice cream, watermelon, and….dentist appointments! Because you’ve gotta take advantage of weekdays with nothing to do!! 

Don’t forget to stock your pool bag! I am obsessed with my new FunkyMonkey slides
