We love the fourth of July! We went to the parade again this year. In the past it has been very difficult to find a good spot, so Adrienne, Tim and Jacob spent the night at the park saving us a nice stretch right along the parade route! They did not get a lot of sleep and neither did I, I was worried about them. But when we got there we had a nice spot to share with Megan and her family and friends and our neighbors Jim and Teresa! It was lots of fun to watch and visit. It was a bit shorter this year than usual, which was also nice! It ended right about the time the temperature started to get up near uncomfortable!
We came home and Richard helped me make several flavors of home made ice cream! Yummy! We got some dry ice and took it with us out to Banks for the fireworks display that has become a tradition for our family. This year we got a couple of pizzas from Main Street right there in the parking lot and had fun eating on our grassy spot and waiting for dark! Lori and the girls joined us as well as April, so it was really fun! Not long before dark Marella joined us with mom and dad and Gabe, Zach and Conrad! It was a fun night!
