Now I know what you’re wondering: “What will I do with all of my time if the library is closes at 5 and then stays closed for 3 extra days?” Well good news, Boston has you covered! There are parades, fireworks, and even a reading of the Declaration of Independence from the balcony of the Old State House! So you can head over here and see all the information about the events this weekend.

Enjoy your time off, make sure to check out some of the celebrations, and don’t forget to put on your sunscreen!

Happy Independence Day, everyone!

As I was speaking with my sister last weekend she was in the process of trying a new way of making s’mores.  My young nephews had a lot of fun assembling these delicious treats and I can’t wait to try it this holiday weekend!  Campfire cones (or campfire treats) substitute the graham crackers for ice cream cones.  Stuff your cone with marshmallows, chocolate, and whatever else you’d like (peanut butter, strawberries, etc.).  Wrap it with tin foil and then either bake it, put it on the grill, or heat it over a campfire.  When you are finished you have this chocolatey goodness!

Tired of plain brownies?  Why not try adding things to the batter?!  I keep seeing this one with Oreos and peanut butter!  Yummy!

This last one is perfect for the 4th of July!  My family has done this trifle before!  The main ingredients include angel food cake, whipped cream, strawberries, and blueberries.  One recipe can be found here:  http://bit.ly/1BUD5fu  This can also be presented as a whole cake with an American Flag pattern!
