In my family, the 4th of July has always been a birthday celebration for my sister Keri--and our country second. This year since the 4th of July was on a Sunday, it threw a kink into our well laid out, tried and true celebration: all day long spent at the beach. We couldn't spend the whole day at the beach because we didn't want to ditch out on church. So instead of just abandoning the beach, we just moved it to a day earlier and added on a bunch of other party activities.
