Happy Birthday America!!!

WOW!!! What a great weekend and wonderful 4th. No painting work happening the past few days.

The park district in our small town hosts a children's walking parade each 4th of July. The kids decorate their bikes, wagons and scooters and are judged for their creativity. There is even a doggie category!

Our youngest LOVES fire engines. And today he was able to get an up-close look and couldn't take his eyes off it.

The parents and children walk from one of the parks out to the town recreation center. Once there they had prizes and snacks for all the participants.

Our kids each won prizes in their categories! Not bad for a quick decorating job this morning. They were, of course, thrilled with their win and wore their medals ALL day!

The town's mayor was even there to hand out the prizes. How nice is that?

Here's hoping your holiday was as fabulous as ours.
