4th of July 2014

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!

Looked like the perfect 4th of July and must admit that it is one of my favorites too, because it is summer and usually warm weather, which you know is my favorite time of the year ;)
