Weekly Wrap Up–Independence Day

The girls and I have had a wonderful week.  We went to see the Lego Movie, finished up the summer reading program for the library, and sat in the pouring rain waiting for a baseball game to start (it didn’t).

The best part of our week has been celebrating Independence Day with several thousand friends and strangers.   We started off at the park for the 10am parade.  We live within walking distance, so we carry our  chairs and drinks down and let the fun come to us.

Here are just a few of the fun entries from the parade.

The celebration will continue at the park all day. Wrapping up with a fireworks display tonight, which we’ll head back down to.

In the mean time, we headed to the other side of town, to the completely empty park and had a lovely picnic and played for a couple of hours.

We're home resting, and I’m making goodies for tomorrow’s family get together.  I hope you all have a wonderful July 4th as we celebrate our independence.

Linking up with the Weekly Wrap Up.

  1. Aw! Looks like a GREAT 4th! Unfortunately, we're rained out here so I'm seeing what everyone else was up to!

    1. I'm sorry your day was rained out! We had perfect weather during the day, high 70's to low 80's and no humidity. We actually had to wear jackets when we walked down to watch the fireworks. Have a great weekend, and thanks for stopping by!
