A Happy 4th

We’ve had a good start to our 4th of July...

Starting with donuts and a parade long enough to wear everybody out.

We took a nice Sunday afternoon drive up to the mountains…

…and if I can coax everyone into afternoon naps I’ll get the binding on this with a few hours to spare before we head out to eat eat eat and watch fireworks….and eat some more.

That parade was SOOO long! We didn't last much longer than the dragon. In my opinion, they needed some Vikings to liven things up.
