More and more, it’s looking like our family will be enjoying a backyard Fourth of July this year. With Covid-19 cases on the rise in Dallas and our favorite neighborhood parade canceled, I’m going to do what moms do best … find creative ways to make fun memories right at home. Here are some of the goods I’m considering purchasing for the occasion.
