I just LOVE LOVE LOVE the 4th of July! I love the BBQ's, the colors, the festivities, family gathering, and most of all my baby boy Loukas was born on this day. So parties are always big, patriotic, and full of food, desserts, and family. However, this year my little man has asked for a non-patriotic party. A motorcycle party at Pump-It-Up with no Red-White-and Blue, no fireworks, and not at home. So sad. But it is his BIG 5, so I let him have a non-patriotic birthday. But I just had to reminisce on the parties in the past and the fun times we had. Hope fully you get inspired for your BBQ this weekend! I will be making him his Flag birthday cake, no matter what!!! It's a family favorite and I will share the recipe below! Enjoy and Happy 4th of July America!
