15 A flippin’ sweet 4th of July Pretty much nothing beats the 4th of July weekend in a small town in Idaho. Throw in a trip to the sand dunes, a lake and a bunch of cousins followed by snowcones, awesome uncles, and a parade. How can you beat it? All that was missing was a llama, a game of tether ball and a flippin’ skit. Good times. Except the part where the small town fire truck drenches you unexpectedly at the end of said parade. But maybe that depends on who you ask.
