Independence Day or July fourth is a big deal in America. We enjoy celebrating our independence from England and the Declaration of Independence with parades, cook-outs, and fireworks. We asked a few of our Inkspell authors about their holiday plans. We hope you enjoy hearing about their events and have a wonderful holiday too!
"This year my family is spending Independence Day with my oldest brother and his family. He was a 20 year marine, and now works in national security, so our American pride really comes out when we're together. He survived 3 tours in Iraq, and has devoted his life to protecting the freedoms that so many of us take for granted."
This July 4th, the family is heading to "Tortuga", our seasonal, pirate themed campsite in Upstate, NY for a few days of nature, sunshine, BBQs and campfires. No fireworks or big parties, but there is always something for the kids to do or someone for them to hang out with, and you can't beat the fresh air.
I can't wait to sink into five days of outdoor bliss. I might even manage to do a little writing. *fingers crossed*
All our family is a thousand miles away, so we don't have any plans for Fourth of July. The weather is insanely hot this time of year in the Deep South--we'll probably just grill hot dogs and eat them in the comfort of our air conditioning!
I'll be enjoying some family time pool-side! My cousin, Kym, and her family have the most amazing backyard. It truly looks like a resort, complete with waterfall flowing into the pool, fire pit and cabana bed. It's going to be a full day of catching up and relaxing.
It sounds like our authors have some wonderful plans for the holiday. How will you celebrate Independence Day?
