Hands down, 4th of July is the BIGGEST holiday in D.C. So, it is always fun to get involved with the festivities. We went to a parade, and I'm not sure if it was more fun to watch Amelia watch the parade or watch the actual parade.
We also attended a breakfast with our Ward. I brought firework cupcakes. You frost the cupcake, roll the top in colored coconut and then stick a piece of licorice in the top. Very cute. To color the coconut you put 1/2 C of shredded coconut in a ziplock bag and put in 2-3 drops of food coloring. Seal the bag and shake. In seconds you have colored coconut!
