4th of July Parade

The kids and I got up a little earlier than normal to get dressed and ready to go to a parade. The parade route ended right at the park where we had Day Camp, so I knew right where to go and where to park. It was fun! Took a while for the parade to get to us, but the kids enjoyed getting the candy.

The kids each had their special outfits. Pinterest. I will take no credit for the design of those outfits.
Andi's came from here: No Sew Flag Shirts. The idea for the boys' shirts came from here: Firecracker Tie-Dye T-shirts.

 We waited for almost an hour after the parade started to finally see some of the parade. Boy were we glad when it finally arrived!

About half way through enthusiasm waned...

 The balloons were fun:

This float shot flames:

The candy was a real perk:

Then we headed home. I'd like to go back next year, but I'm definitely going to have us watch from the start of the parade rather than the end.
