John Cave Osborne is a writer whose work has appeared on such sites as Babble, TLC, YahooShine and the Huffington Post. He was also referenced by Jezebel one time, but he’s pretty sure they were making fun of him. While he’s name dropping, it’s only fair to point out that Ashton Kutcher tweeted one of John’s YouTube videos, but it may have only been because Ashton felt sorry for him. After all, John went from carefree bachelor to father of four in just 13 months thanks to marrying a single mom then quickly conceiving triplets. Since then, he and his wife have added one more to the mix, a little boy they named Grand Finale. They all live chaotically in Knoxville, Tn with Briggs the dog.
If I’ve been asked once, I’ve been asked a dozen times. What are y’all gonna do for the fourth of July? The answer is…
I have no idea. On the one hand, I hope we do something special. But on the other, if by “special,” you mean out of the ordinary, then I hope for nothing of the sort. Because our summer, thus far at least, has been phenomenal, and it’s been so in an ordinary, everyday kinda way.
Yes. There have been trips to the beach, long afternoons by the swimming pool and even a backpacking excursion into the mountains. But the common thread woven throughout these activities has been our ordinary, everyday kinda family. Because, whatever we’ve done, we’ve done it together.
Which is why I really don’t care what I do on the special day. As long as I get to do it with them. And as long as it’s similar to the fun things we’ve already been doing.
Which is why I’d be just fine with doing any of the following 20 activities on the fourth of July.
Have a snow cone
Like I did with Peanut here a while back.
