For some, Independence Day means barbecues. For others, it’s parades and fireworks. For my family, it’s a little bit of everything!
Ever since I was a baby, my family has celebrated July 4th on the Connecticut shoreline. Each year’s party is speckled with swimming, sunbathing and barbecuing. And at the end of the evening, the beach is lit up with fireworks.
