  1. Cute ideas! We did the strawberries last year and really wanted to do them again. HOwever, I decided they won't stand up to the 101F weather. So, we are doing red, white, and blue rice treats.

  2. Lots of great finds for the 4th! Thanks so much for featuring my apples!

    Have a wonderful holiday!
