On the Fourth, I mostly cleaned and cooked food all morning. But our afternoon was spent going to a parade in a nearby town.
There were far too many firetrucks and they were loud.
I always love the bands. But I wonder about how they walk. Is walking so stiff something these kids (does calling them kids make me old? don't answer that please) have to practice or something they have to show that they can do in tryouts? Either way, it's quite entertaining.
Someone was handing out Popsicles and they were delicious and a nice treat in the heat.
After the parade we went back to our house and enjoyed an evening of swimming and eating with family.
The Fourth is not only a holiday for us to celebrate but we also celebrate Brad's birthday as well.
And that is how we spent our holiday.
