  1. Cute idea for beach goers. I prefer a vacation in a quiet country setting.

    I do not need to be enter in the giveaway for "Dawn of Liberty". I have a copy already.

  2. We will probably stay home but I do love to see fireworks. Thanks for sharing these directions and I also already have Amber's book. Happy 4th of July!

    1. Our city has a free outdoor concert and huge fireworks display. I can see it from my house. Hope the sky is clear on the 4th because we'll be staying home too.
