4th of July

For a change, the weather was somewhat pleasant (when I say pleasant, I mean low 90s and not 100s) for this year's 4th of July.  The milder temps allowed us to enjoy our annual outdoor activities without dripping in sweat.

Last year's parade goers versus this year's parade goers:
Us moms wised up this year with candy bribes.  What were we thinking last year??

I love our neighborhood parade.  It's the perfect combo of tricycle-riding participants, local floats, and high school hipsters rocking out in the back of their dad's pickup truck (we saw two such spectacles).
Precious Charlie and William packed into the wagon for a photo op.
 The parade gang:
Did I mention Palmer had a little candy?
 Yes, he had a little candy.
Our evening was filled with swimming, bounce houses, a great American BBQ buffet, and fireworks at the club with the Burrus family.

Glo stick fun before the fireworks:
 It's getting darker...
And FIREWORK time!
Palmer thought the fireworks were hilarious and kept laughing at each explosion.  It was so fun to share the magic of 4th of July fireworks with him this year.
