Favorite part if July 4th the bbq. Even though we do it a ton during summer, for some reason it's the best on 4th of July.

I like the relaxed feeling of the holiday, one of the few days off, and no where in particular one needs to be.

My favorite part is going to this HUGE party friends of ours have every 4th of July! Pardon me for bragging but there is swimming (with a zip-line!), boating, soccer games, fishing, volleyball, riding around on four wheelers, a LOT of food (last year they even roasted a whole pig), disc shooting, and just hanging out under the shade of the trees all going on at the same time! I love it!

As cliche as it sounds, my favorite part is the fireworks. They're a beautiful spectacle we only get to see 1 a year. It makes me feel wonderfully patriotic and proud.
