I was on the bay in a big white boat watching the firework show, while the crowd behind us on land cheered. Wine, family, and song. Perfection.

We always go to my moms house for the 4th. This year was really quite though, my husband had to work and my stepdads kids were off doing there own thing. The weather was nice though and we had a great view of the fireworks.

It was pretty low-key, we stayed home, watch the fireworks together from the deck :p We had the star seats, and we didn't have to spend a dime to watch the show, our neighbors were the ones buying and playing the fireworks :lol:

I was actually in a wedding yesterday, so it was a different (but really fun) type of celebration than I'm used to for the 4th.

We are in an awesome beach house, and it's a good thing because it has been raining all weekend

We didn't really celebrate just hung out at home like usual. We were going to watch the movie independence day but didn't get around to it.

I haven't any plans, so I'm just hanging out and putting together a package for my husband (he's in iraq). my dog is terrified of fireworks, so i'll probably just stay home and watch a movie or something and keep her from going beserk with all the noise.

We usually go to the top of a mountain somewhere to watch all of the fireworks across L.A. and the OC but since some folks are cutting back this year, concern over fires and $$, we'll be going to the top of the parking garage at my work and watching the fireworks at the Rose Bowl. Those always prove to be pretty. Not as fun as seeing so many over the area though.

Took hubby to the airport this morning :-( Going to the gym in a little bit. Then just hanging out here at home, the children will swim in our pool, I'll do hotdogs on the grill for them, fruit and then cupcakes for dessert. We'll watch the fireworks in the park behind our house and we'll be able to see the fireworks on the strip as well. I love that we don't have to leave our house to see the displays. Wisdom I love those cake toppers they're sooo cute! Happy 4th Everyone!

We're hoping to get the boat out on the lake sometime this weekend, but today is dark and dreary. I'm getting the house cleaned today so I won't have to worry about it when the weather breaks.

We're heading to a small town festival for inner-tubing, bouncy castles and henna tattoos. We'll be eating lots of picnic food, including a fireworks cake I made (
