We usually celebrate the 4th of July by having hamburgers and hot dogs on the grill and then letting off a few fireworks with family, but this year was quite a bit different. We decided to take the kids for a drive to have a picnic and then to Dairy Queen for ice cream the day before, which turned out great! A lot of people were out either fishing, camping, or just visiting for the day.
Then of course we had to hit the gift shops. One is called The Trading Post and they have this awesome rock chimney with a huge rock shaped like West Virginia!
I picked up a bag of horehound candy and a sweet fall sign before we left!
On the 4th we ended up heading the other direction, hubby wanted to pick up some fishing lures but all his stores were closed for the holiday so we ended up doing some grocery shopping instead! I know not fun right but at least it wasn’t crowded, I think maybe two other people came in to shop while we were there… too bad it can’t be that way every time!
Either way we had a good but extremely simple Independence Day. I hope you all had a safe and wonderful holiday!
