Late Happy 4th

I am so grateful for a holiday to celebrate our amazing country! We are so blessed to live here (even with all the irritating political/economical issues). We can sit and whine about all the problems with our country, but bottom line is we have so much more than we could ever want here. We have so many freedoms, plenty of food and clean water, exceptional health care available, opportunity at every turn and the list goes on and on. I guess I just want to say I am proud to be an AMERICAN! :)

We went over to Wash Park for their little celebration. It was so cute! Everyone brought picnic lunches while the kids decorated their tricycles and bikes. Then they had a parade of the bikes. They had the mounted police, a fire truck, toys, and free ice cream. It was really fun, but so hot I thought I was going to die! Poor Grey was exhausted and passed out on our way home. That night we had some friends over to BBQ on our new patio and firepit. YAY! We are in the process of re-landscaping mostly by ourselves so it is VERY slow-going. We made smores and played with the legal stuff like poppers.
