Friend Makin Monday!

When I remember... I like to take part in "Friend Makin Monday's". It's fun to read what other's have to say about the current topic... today it's appropriately the 4th of July!!! Shawn from Seriously is our host today... :)

Here are our questions of the day....

What are you doing this July 4th?? This year we're going to be up in MI for our family vacation. My parents are camping "up north" so we're going to join them for a day at the beach and a campfire cookout. My sister and her family are also up there camping so they'll get to join us! I grew up camping over the 4th so I"m excited to "relive" some of those memories. No fireworks this year though... it's a small town and near impossible to get around on the 4th.

What is your favorite dish to pass when attending a 4th of July party or summer barbecue?
I'm a dessert person... I love to bake. I just canned some fresh tart cherries, so this year it's going to be a fresh cherry pie. Also some star shaped brownies. I don't have anything specific... usually things my kids will eat :).

Do you have any July 4th traditions? Last year we helped out with our church's HUGE summer outreach - Food, Fun, and Fireworks. When we're home here in OH, we'll probably volunteer to help with that. When we're not home... it's usually a picnic and a family day at the beach.

Share your favorite July 4th picture. Horror of horror's... I don't have any handy! We lost a bunch of pics on our computer so needless to say, I have nothing from past 4th of July celebrations. Watch for some next week though... if I get a chance!

Have fun on your 4th everyone - be safe and ENJOY! Remember our troops as you celebrate the freedoms that we are blessed with.


  1. A fresh cherry pie sounds YUMMY! Have a great 4th and happy FMM!


  2. I would love some tart cherrie pie filling. My great grandmother made the best cherry pies. Takes me back. We'll miss you on Saturday...have fun in MI.

  3. Cherry pie is the greatest! :)

    Happy FMM!

  4. Sounds like you guys are going to have a fun 4th of July! And, FYI, you're not alone in liking the dessert part best! :)

  5. Your plans for the 4th sound great and I love your "traditions."

  6. Hi there! Loved your FMM answers! I didn't quite have my act together to participate this week. I am also a dessert person. I can't wait for some pie on the fourth!

    Thanks for coming over and saying hi! I love your blog!
