We celebrated 4th July in the way I was told that all Americans do - with a bbq. Now we were in a camp site in upstate NY. Its hot outside so a dip in the pond was lovely! The mosquitoes breeding in the pond less cute but with some super strength mozzie spray I avoided most bites except on hands where I washed and didnt reapply - silly me.
We could hear the fire works but not see them - but I have seen enough fireworks to be able to picture in my head the view behind the trees. Giant new tent is great although I doubt it will hold up in a lot of rain, we might find out next weekend when we go camping again.
