Happy 4th of July!

I think that I always think every holiday is my favorite when it's here, but right now the 4th of July is my favorite holiday.  Come Thanksgiving I will probably say that is my favorite holiday.  Maybe they're tied.  Here are some reasons why I love today so much:

1. It's totally normal to spend the day at the beach.  I like any reason to encourage beach-going.

2. The holiday food consists of BBQ and other grilled deliciousness.

3. Fireworks!

4. Apple pie.  Or any other kind of pie really.

5. People dye their baked goods and other foods red and blue.  I love good use of food coloring.

Happy Birthday America!
