I love the 4th of July. I love fireworks. I love sparklers. But most of all I love living in the United States of America and the blessing of being a US citizen. Life gets so hectic that I forget what a blessing it is to live in a country that provides so many freedoms and opportunities!
I love the flag in these pictures, this is the flag my 24 year old son was awarded when he earned the rank of Eagle Scout in the Boy Scouts Of America. His 11 year old brother is currently working towards earning his Eagle Scout award.
Over the years I have had the privilege of being my son’s scout leader. One thing I have come to appreciate is how the BSA teaches my boys about our country’s history and to understand our governmental system.
I’m most appreciative that my sons have learned to love their country and what it means truly be patriotic. As soon as my oldest son turned 18 he signed up for the Selective Service System. He was excited and proud when his SSS ID card came in the mail.
I love to see the respect my youngest son shows for the flag when he “Posts the Colors” at Pack meeting. At the age of 11 years old he understands why “Posting the Colors” is an honor and a privilege. At the age of 11 years old he also enjoys fireworks, sparklers and fun treats like these 4th of July Ice Cream Cones from Amy at Designer of all Things Cute!
- Colored chocolate candy melts
- Ice cream cones
- 4th of July sprinkles
- Ice Cream
- Chocolate Magic Shell
- Whip Cream
Making these ice cream cones is quick and easy.
Simply melt some colored chocolate candy melts in a bowl, dip the ice cream cones in the melted chocolate. Shake off the excess chocolate, shake on some 4th of July sprinkles and the ice cream cones are done! Scoop your ice cream ahead of time and place the scoops on a cookie sheet and return to the freezer. When you are ready to serve them, remove the scoops from your freezer, place the ice cream scoops on the ice cream cones. Pour some magic shell over them, place a dollop of whip cream and cherry on top. Serve and enjoy! A treat this easy……….
