4th of July

The 4th of July began with our annual trip to the Loganville parade. There's not much to it, some tractors, old cars, horses, and motorcycles, but the kids love it.

After the parade, we headed up to the OC church where they were holding a car show. I would have never wanted to go do that, but things change when you have a boy. He ooh'ed and ahh'ed and wanted to touch each and every one (even though there was a "Do not touch" sign on each one). Wryeton liked the arts and crafts part and I was talked into buying a ribbon halo.

After lunch at Granny and Dadaddy's, we went home and had a marathon nap. Good thing because we were up late watching fireworks. The Riddles invited us over for a steak cookout. We all gorged ourselves on all the food. We had steak, salad, baked potatoes, macaroni and cheese, creamed corn, watermelon, and Alicia's red, white, and blue dippers. We had homemade vanilla ice cream and red, white, and blue jello pie for dessert. The kids then played in the baby pool and sprinklers in the front yard before we left to go see fireworks.

Dan led us to the middle of no where to go see fireworks. I had never even heard of the town of Gratis so I was a little skeptical about the show. Michael laughed and joked how the fireworks were going to be some farmer holding up Roman Candles and sparkles. Boy were we wrong! We were pleasantly suprised to watch the solid half hour of amazing fireworks! It was a great fourth!!
