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.
About half way through enthusiasm waned...
The balloons were fun:

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.
