July 4th craft t-shirts

en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tradition – A tradition is a belief or behavior passed down within a group or society with symbolic meaning or special significance with origins in the past.

As I was reminiscing about our annual July 4th Family Week in Hot Springs Village, Arkansas I realized that several of our activities were becoming “traditions”. Because Larry and I have a blended family, we haven’t had the opportunity to develop many special family traditions, but now that we have grandchildren in the mix that is changing.

Ice cream sundae extravaganza

One our favorite traditions on July 4th is the “Ice Cream Sundae Extravaganza”. After our cookout and before fireworks we have a buffet of every kind of topping and sauces you could want or imagine along with different flavors of ice cream. It’s not a question of “how many toppings do we need?” or “Am I still hungry?”. It’s all about gluttonous fun and extravagance! And everyone one remembers it and looks forward to this special event. It’s a tradition that we hope will outlive us. This small thing brings out love, laughter and the kind of memories that create a legacy.
