Hope you had a safe and happy independence day! One of my favorite things about summer is celebrating our country’s birthday!  The backyard parties, the little kid bike parades, getting together to watch fireworks at the dunes or lighting your own at home makes me feel nostalgic for the traditions my family had each year. I’m grateful for these kinds of traditions that bring us together with a shared sense of gratitude for our country. We started our 4th with a bike ride down to the beach, spent a few hours in the sun and then rode back home for a potluck party. We usually invite a few friends over and everyone pitches in by bringing something to share. This year we drove down to the dunes and watched the fireworks from the NAC – the perfect spot for viewing both Fashion Island and the Newport Dunes fireworks show at the same time. They’re pretty spectacular! Here are a few photos from the day…
