Happy 4th of July!

Today we participated in our neighborhood parade. The babies really seemed to enjoy our patriotic bike ride and waving to the folks that stood on each corner. There were a lot of families out in the parade. Lots more than in the last two years so it was exciting to see how our little neighborhood is moving into a young family scene. It was once one of the places to settle and well most of those parents that settled have stayed even though their kids have grown and have settled else where with now their little families. Our friends the Sanders, whom today we called (affectionately of course) the Bystanders because they watched rather than joined in took some pictures of us and I hope to get a copy so I can share. Their babies looked like they enjoyed waving their flags watching fire trucks, ambulances, families on bikes, babies in strollers and wagons, police cars, vintage cars, the swim team (throwing candy) on the back of a flat trailer being pulled by a truck, kids on ATVs, scooters, etc go by.

There is normally a big ta do at the clubhouse but we have yet to make it there. Maybe next year. Maybe next year us and our friends the Bystanders will dive into the "scene" at the clubhouse but then again we don't want to get too crazy now do we.

Happy 4th of July! I hope your day was happy and thankful.
