One of my favorite holidays has always been the Fourth of July. My family spent the red, white and blue occasion surrounded by family, fireworks and a feast fit for kings. As youngsters, we built sandcastles at the beach, water-skied on the lake and topped off the evening with countless Black Cat poppers and sparklers as we stared at the spectacle in the sky. As we've grown older and moved farther apart, most of us now spend the patriotic day with our own small families and close friends. But, I will always hold those carefree bottle rocket loving days close to my heart and hope to recreate the same fond memories for my own tiny tots. What's your favorite Fourth of July memory?
