Fourth of July Festivities

Patiently Waiting for the Parade to Begin

Saying The Pledge of Allegiance

The Scene
Happy Birthday, America!

This morning we went to the annual neighborhood Fourth of July parade. The parade is just a mix of dogs, kids on bike/trikes, babies in strollers...all wearing their best red-white-and-blue, led by a fire engine and the Boy Scout troop around the block. There aren't any spectators because everyone is a participator. One little boy was quite upset that there weren't people along the parade route to see him (he was dressed as Lady Liberty, which won him first prize in the costume contest - no wonder he wanted people to see him!). This evening, we grilled hot dogs and watched the fireworks. It was a great day!
