5th of July

July 4th has come and gone and it was a good day. We got some work done around the house, but best of all the girls were in their 1st parade, ever! They were in heaven. My oldest was able to hang out with her friends and she got to walk in the parade and hand out candy. My middle and youngest were on the Charlie Brown float. The float they were on won a Trustees Award! One aunt (and only one) showed up, but may not have seen the girls as they were on one side. We had a grill out and the girls lighted up the sparklers my mom had bought them last year. They do not like sparklers and they like to watch fireworks, but not outside, they like to be able to go right to bed afterwards. They are funny, but I get it. I don't like being outside being eaten by bugs, either.
