This function allows the addition of day(s),month(s),year(s) to the original date while still preserving the Hours, minutes and seconds
You can also modify to add to hours, miuntes and even seconds.
function add_date($givendate,$day=0,$mth=0,$yr=0) {
      $cd = strtotime($givendate);
      $newdate = date('Y-m-d h:i:s', mktime(date('h',$cd),
    date('i',$cd), date('s',$cd), date('m',$cd)+$mth,
    date('d',$cd)+$day, date('Y',$cd)+$yr));
      return $newdate;

sorry, there is a missing semi-colon (;) on my previou message. Please try this:

$newdate = add_date(curdate(),4)
echo format($newdate,'m/d/Y');
