This Fourth of July Independence Day don’t just wave your American Flag and eat a hotdog! (although these are not bad ways to enjoy the holiday!)
As you enjoy this most patriotic of American holidays please make sure to take a moment to thank a current or former member of the armed services or if they are deployed, thank their spouse!
Also – remember that the North Carolina State Police are stepping up enforcement this week with numerous Driving While Impaired checkpoints so if you are planning on enjoying adult beverages make sure that you designate a driver or captain if you are boating.
If you are like me and have a young family you can appreciate how much effort goes into packing the family into the car for an excursion that will likely keep them out well past the kids usual bed time.
The Fourth of July is one of those rare occasions that our kids are out of the home past 6pm and they had been eagerly awaiting this outing all week.
Since moving to Raleigh North Carolina four years ago from Traverse City Michigan we always take in the festivities at Cary’s Koka Booth amphitheatre.
