Happy 4th of July!

Happy Birthday America! I know I am a day late, but for some reason I couldn't log into blogger yesterday. We had a great day celebrating with friends and neighbors. When we first moved into our neighborhood about 7 years ago, there really weren't any children. Now, there is a whole gaggle of kids running about our neighborhood. A couple of neighbors and I organized our neighborhood's 4th of July bicycle parade. It is fun having all the kids decorate their bikes, scooters, wagons and even dogs. Even the adults got into the fun. This years parade was bigger than last years! We were able to get a local fire engine to come out and head up our parade. Everyone followed behind the fire engine and marched along the parade route. What fun! Afterward, everyone gathered at a local swim club and picnicked and swam to their hearts content. We ended the evening with friends and neighbors watching fireworks. A good old-fashioned 4th of the July celebration.

Tess was the winner of best decorated bike.

Her brother, Henry won best scooter.

Murphy and Maggie were ready to march in the parade.

This is Barkley, he won for best dog. He really enjoyed the day.

The best part, the kids got to squirt the fire hose.

Happy Day Everyone!
