Gotta love Pinterest, right? We hope you like one of these activities and are able to have a wonderful Fourth of July with family and friends. If any of your kids happen to contract head lice, give us a call. We recommend doing a quick head check at the end of the day if your kids were around other kids. Kids make direct contact with other kids more than we realize. Happy Fourth of July to all!
