4th of July

Well we had a great day yesterday. We left at 9 15 am to go to the neighborhood fire station to meet Harrison’s classmate Christopher and his mom Trish, and we had a pancake breakfast. It was packed! Than the fire trucks were parked outside for the kids to explore,and at 11 the parade started. We felt like we were in Mayberry as it had such a¬†hometown feel.

We kept pushing the kids to run into the street whenver the parade people threw water or candy. They found balloons and flags, and we followed the caboose of the parade to its resting place at a gorgeous park…where we stayed till 5 at night, left for dinner,and arrived at the high school football field for jazz,and fireworks ,and to our surprise 3 huge bounce houses. This was worth the price of admission.

Harrison danced to the music and was in awe of the bright display of fireworks .We finally arrived home after 10 am and he slept for almost 11 hours.He actually ordered salad with his cheeseburger and fries , because his friend didn’t want any vegetables. Mind you, Harrison has never had salad in his life…but he ate some of it…just to outdo his friend.

We had a great time..and tomorrow starts his 2nd week of Intro to 1rst grade. His favorite part is art and recess. lol

    I’m sure he will excel at art and recess. Don’t you just love it…I’m sure you and Tim have set good examples of eating your veggies, but it doesn’t mean a thing until Harrison can outdo his buddy! I’m glad you had a Mayberry 4th. We had a cookout at church and went to two patriotic concerts, and then saw The Jersey Boys on the PBS special, A Capitol Fourth! I also took time to wish your “stage-husband”, JLY, a happy birthday.
    1st grade coming up…what an exciting year for your family. God bless, Lulu
