4th of July: a new HIT

The past few years the parade has been more of a headache than we like. We get there an hour early and find a spot, only to be told that the space was already chosen by a family, so we would have to move. This wouldn't have been so bad, except that usually by then all spots were taken. Last year we had to move 3 times. Well, with two infants, we didn't really want to go and try to find a good place and end of moving. Well, we did the end of the parade thing, and it was a hit. (Thanks Jeanette for thinking of it.) The floats have to slow down and wait for each other. We were able to interact with them and there was no fighting for a spot. The kids were able to gather candy without too much fear of being hit. We used the portable shade to protect us from the sun. One-third of the babies slept the whole time. It was nice and peaceful. We all had a great time and are definitely going again next year to the same place. Such nice people to let us use their front yard to enjoy the 4th. Pin It
