fourth of july parade

The weekend before the 4th, our neighborhood celebrated the holiday a little early with its annual 4th of July parade where the kids decorated their bikes and rode several laps around Prairie Fire Circle while the parents cheered them on. Afterward, they celebrated with cupcakes and much needed water. It was a scorcher as usual.

They started out in a lineup by the playground…

Leslie is thinking that I’m standing right in her way while Kadel happily waits for me to give her a send off.

Here’s Leslie in her first, second and final lap…

Kadel is my little fashionista. I got a chuckle every time she went by in those awesome sunglasses looking so rad.

Afterward, the fire truck came by for a visit…

And they each got a turn with the fire hose…

The target…

After a couple of cupcakes, they were sufficiently sugared up to head home and bounce off the walls cool down.

Happy (belated) Fourth of July!

    Kadel totally rocked those sunglasses! Random question though – is that a large banana in the background? ;-) Hope y’all are having an awesome summer!ReplyCancel
