The Summer is in full swing and it is hard to believe last year we had huge parties and gatherings and lots of fireworks and this year we're still living in a time of uncertainty.  

We feel it's even more important to find ways to celebrate this year even if it means keeping our distance at the same time.  

So let's go barbecue crazy with an amazing Fourth of July spread, filled with red, white and blue fun.
