Happy Fourth!

(I found this picture on my city's website. The family pictured is NOT my family.)

The city I live in (a suburb in a larger metro area) is VERY patriotic. The high school's school colors are red, white, and blue. There is a 4th of July celebration (lasts 3 days!) every year, which includes a carnival, street dance, bike and running races, a ginormous parade, and much more. The parade usually lasts about 2 hours. I thought you might like to see some pictures...

Waiting for the parade to start

Hooray! It's coming!

I decided last night that my kids NEEDED their very own reusable candy bags for the parade today. We went to the fabric store and they picked out their fabric- all their choice, not mine- and I whipped up a couple of bags last night. They are about 12" square and were perfect today! Trying to get a good picture of both of them with their bags wasn't quite so easy.


  1. the school colors are blue and white, no red.

  2. Great Pictures! - I especially love the Rare picture of Blondie, the princess and the prince. Looks like you all had a great Fourth. Hope your 5th 6th and 7th are also wonderful. jcs

  3. Candy bags...what a good idea! Looks like a fun-filled day.


Blondie spoke... now you speak.

It's nice taking turns.

Have a great day!
