July 4th is a favorite holiday of mine. I think it's because of the sense of freedom and celebration that it brings. While many people will gather around the lawn and enjoy fireworks, I prefer to observe a different tradition – one that involves taking time for family and friends. Spending time with those close to you can give you a sense of joy and contentment that often accompanies great American festivities.
Here are our suggestions for having some safe, family fun this fourth of July:
See a Fireworks Show
Who doesn’t enjoy fireworks? The best way to celebrate July 4th (other than family) is to appreciate the traditions that bring people together. Fireworks reflect the magic of America and things brighten up the world around us all. As we celebrate Independence Day, look at how each American community has embraced fireworks as part of their tradition. Some places light up with huge displays while others let loose with smaller bursts of light. As long as it’s safe and the fire danger is low, it shouldn’t be difficult to find a stunning show in Denver!
Have a Backyard Celebration
A backyard party is an awesome way to spend the 4th of July. It's a great way to bond with your family and friends, and it's a great way to keep the stress down from a busy week at work. July 4th is also a great time to reflect on how fortunate we are to live in a country where we have the freedom to celebrate these special days with friends and family. As mothers, it's especially important that we take time out for ourselves to appreciate all that our family has given us. Listening to music, having food and fun filled festivities can easily lead to slumber party mode. The best way to avoid this is to plan ahead and have plenty of fun activities planned out. All it takes is commitment and creativity!
Invest in a Bunch of Fountains
Firework fountains are legal to set off in Denver and can be great fun or the whole family, as long as safety is taken into consideration. Most fireworks are safe to watch as long as you respect the environment around you. You can also take precautions, such as having a bucket of water nearby and only letting adults light the fireworks, which will help increase safety during the big event.
