We love traditions in this house, and the Fourth of July is no exception! We start the day out with a festive breakfast! Some years it has been a fun toast with a flag on it, then colorful pancakes, but this is my fave and I know everyone will eat it! The colorful milk is always a hit, honestly I have no idea how it tastes and its probably not good or good for them but they love it!
Here is a view before everyone gets settled and it all gets messy! I love simple decor even with holidays.
I will be sharing below how to make this yummy Fourth of July dessert thats perfect for anytime of the day!
Now that you see the pretty, time for the messy! We always call it a success when the rug isn’t covered with red and blue milk! Its really something the kids look forward to so we learn to expect whatever happens next.
You know when you set the bar high, when you start all these traditions when they are young and expect them each year … I wouldn’t trade these moments for anything and hope they keep asking for it every year!
