As a busy mom, I know time is precious. Checking the calendar daily is a must for keeping my family on schedule. But sometimes a holiday (like July 4th!) can sneak up unexpectedly and I find myself scrambling to make plans. Planning a get-together at the last minute can make busy parents even more stressed because we think it takes days to put together a memorable celebration. But not anymore…
