The 4th of July is one of my favorite holidays and I usually have three things I like to do for the celebration – swimming, eat a hot dog, and fireworks. For the 2nd year in a row, I was able to do all three!

The day began with the neighborhood bike parade. The kids decorate their bikes and then they all ride up the street with a police escort. A fire truck comes too and it’s a good time!

Next we went to a local town’s 4th of July festival. We like to go there every year as well!

Then we were off to the pool. They had a big slide set up and here you can see Zachary going down it:

For dinner, there was hot dogs, and after dinner we were able to walk nearby where we can see the fireworks. It was a good show, which Simon slept through!

I hope everyone had a good holiday weekend!
