The 4th...on the 12th

So I'm a little behind on the July 4th post, huh? Oh well. I wanted to post some pics of the festivities. At the last minute we decided to go to a parade. Honestly, it was kind of a bust. It was long, a little boring, and NO candy. It's only redeeming qualities were the veterans, the marching band, and lunch at City BBQ. Later that day we went to church and then out to dinner with friends. We finished it off by watching the fireworks from a parking lot. They were such great fireworks! Overall...a great Independence day.

Ye old flag:

We were at that parade; but we got TONS of candy!!! Maybe you were further on down and they already gave it all away...

Sad, we had to miss that parade this year. I worked the 3rd and 4th! Last year we sat through it in the rain and I was 5 mos pregnant. :) Don't worry about being behind--I'm roughly a month behind in blogging!
