4th of July Parade

Every year, our neighborhood puts on a 4th of July parade. This year, the parade had to be held on Saturday morning, due to the holiday falling on Sunday.

Here is Preston and Ella setting out for the parade. Bob used red, white, and blue streamers, and made stars with red glitter to decorate the wagon. I'm pretty sure that we may be finding glitter on Ella for about the next year!

Here is the line up for the parade. There are people who decorated golf carts, kids on bikes, kids in wagons, cars decorated, kids on scooters, babies in strollers, decorated pets, and even just those wearing fun holiday clothing.

It's not the longest parade, but the kids all have a great time. It circles the block and then everybody congregates at the end house for treats.

Here is Brennen and his scooter. His scooter did not end up making it around the block, and was just left at the beginning/end house, because he tired of it in about the first minute!

Caden was all pumped for the parade. He felt like we were slowing him down, as did Maddox, so they just went on and left us during the parade!

Brennen ended up joining Preston and Ella in the wagon. Ella would gladly have given up her seat to him, as she wanted to get out so badly!

Here is a picture of Ella wearing her July 4th tutu that a great friend made for her. This is her first tutu and she looked absolutely adorable if I do say so myself!!!
