This was our kids FIRST real 4th of July. Living in Mexico, we always have a 4th of July get together where we invite other Americans or close friends to our house for an American style barbecue. Our kids had a vague concept of the 4th of July but I think they get what Patriotism is about now! We went to a local park and saw probably the best fireworks display I have ever seen. It was incredible! The kids enjoyed a day of just hanging out at the park with mom, dad, grandpa and grandma. One of the highlights was that we were sitting next to a Mexican family that was grilling some carnes asadas… we made friends with them and they offered some of their delicious tacos, home made salsa, home made beans and rice, and of course some chiles to us!
