Happy 4th of July!

I used to love the 4th of July as a kid.  Our neighborhood (the greater neighborhood, not our little section of it) always did a huge parade complete with fire engines to the neighborhood park where there were then games, activities, and lots and lots of food and friends!  It was always such a great time, though HOT HOT HOT!  I even remember getting a ribbon for my decked out tricycle.

Our neighborhood does not have such a grand event, and while there are a others in the area, with a new baby, I think we will keeping this one close to home this year.  A trip to the pool an/or the park is likely on the docket.  And if it does not get too hot, daddy will grill hot dogs and brats.

But we will still get to see fireworks, despite all the dry conditions.  Lucky for us, from our front porch we can see about 4 different communities firework shows, all from the comfort of our home.  No crazy crowds, no having to battle traffic, and the bathroom is very accessible!  This year we are going to let our daughter stay up and enjoy the fireworks too 🙂

Have a wonderful 4th of July!
