4th of July!

Following my OCD tendencies, this has also to be back dated! (Its 8/23 right now...just a tad late!)

For the 4th of July we almost always go out to Grantsville for the parade and a BBQ with Jake's Mom and Dad. There's just something about those small town parades that I love! Although, it always makes me mad that their cheerleaders and drill team don't actually march...they ride in trucks! What the heck!! For Drill Team we had 6 AM practices for months to get ready for the few parades we would march in! Plus, we looked good, too! So G-ville people...I'm just sayin...

Anyway, the kids love the parade to grab the candy they toss out, and we always end up with two bags full of salt water taffy (YUMMO!). My Mom usually gets the kids special little 4th outfits, but this year the Post Office guaranteed it to be to us on the 3rd, but we actually didn't get the package until that Monday the 7th! Bummer!

Here are some pics from the day. It was actually sprinkling a bit before the parade, but cleared up just in time for it to start. That totally cooled us down so this year we weren't so hot!

Waiting for the parade to start!

After the parade we headed over to see the classic cars at the park. The kids loved this oldie fire truck!

Then the fireworks and sparklers later at home...another fun 4th of July!
