    July 4th - Sun, Fun and Fireworks! What are your plans?
    Elizabeth_WebMD_Staff posted:
    What are your plans for celebrating the 4th of July? Does it involve sun, fun and fireworks?

    I am stocking up on sunscreen and making plans to attend fireworks. My 7 year old loved them as an infant and toddler, hated them as a 4 and 5 year old, cautiously watched last year. Ready to see what this year brings!
