4th of July

The 4th of July is my favorite holiday...the weather is usually pretty nice, it was this year anyway, there's nothing to plan/prepare/clean the house for. It's just a relaxing, fun with family kind of day!

In the morning we went to the parade...

Jake wasn't interested in having his picture taken.

After the parade we had a picnic at Homme and played on all the fun playground equipment.

We headed back uptown to check out the petting zoo and car show.

Next we went to the school park. Jake had been wanting to show us how he could climb to the top of the jungle gym for quite some time. We finally got to see...

We picked up some fireworks - smoke bombs, parachutes, snakes and sparklers and took off for home...

The day ended with the big fireworks show in town. Jake stayed with Grandma and we headed to the Legion.

It was a great day!
