Happy 4th of July

One of my favorite things about summer is the Fourth of July. Every year we head to South Puget Sound to my in-laws’ beach house to celebrate the holiday.


Ferry to Herron Island, WA

It’s a fun-filled weekend complete with a big fireworks show at the beach, plenty of fresh cracked crab, and an old fashioned parade. For my mother in law, the decorating is the most fun of all from the beach cabana, to the picnic table to the parade float. With some bunting and lots of flags, anything can be turned into a float – bikes, ATV’s, golf carts, even boat trailers disguised as ferries (as is the case for my in-laws).

As for the wardrobe ? It’s super casual, and this year promises to be hot and sunny, so it’s shorts, tees, swimsuits and sweatshirts. Red, white, and blue of course!

I can’t wait to spend the weekend with family digging clams, drinking cold wine, and celebrating America.

Happy 4th to everyone ~ have a great long weekend!
