th of July Parade this year, for the King and I. We had a great time waving and handing out flyer's. It was the best though, when we walked by my family and we had our own cheering section!! haha, it was really fun. Katie was such a trooper too! They had a trailer for the kids if they got too tired to walk and [Katie even wore really bad shoes for walking] but she wanted to walk. After the parade we went to Natalie and Erinn's house for a barbecue. YUM! We had a blast! Natalie made some way cute ice cubes [she used red and blue Hawaiian punch] we used as ice cubes with sprite....they were so cute! After we ate the guys watched a movie and Natalie and I sewed.... it was fun. We also killed some time playing football in the front yard.
Finally around 9:30pm we walked down to watch the city fireworks show! It was spectacular! The kids loved it! I always get such a kick out of watching the fireworks....they are so beautiful. They had some new ones this year that were so slow and sparkly.....they were my favorite. After the finale they lit a firework that was an enormous BOOM.....Jared said 'Dad, did you feel that?! That made the wind move over my face.' It was pretty funny, cause it was a huge boom. (how dumb do I sound.....i don't even know what any of this stuff is called.)
Anyway, we had a great time and a great Holiday! Thanks Natalie and Erinn for hosting such a great party!! I didn't get hardly any pictures, but that was kind of a nice break from that, too!!
did you notice our t-shirts?!?! my brother Jake made those for the play......pretty cool, huh!?
