4th of July in Washington, D.C.

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!
