Here at our house we celebrate 2 important things on the 4th of July. Our country's Independence, and Faith's birthday. This makes everything twice as fun, but also a bit complicated fitting everything in.
So here is a glimpse at our fourth.
In the morning some of us went down town to look about and see a bit of the parade.
Sadie looking all patriotic!
The town's population exploded once again. Amazing how many people come out for the fourth!!
The parade is definitely a small town deal, with lots of tractors, classic cars, and a few horses.
This horse was a little unusual looking. :)
The highlight of the parade - California Or Bust...
I truly think we win for having the most tractors in a parade!
Some pretty cars. (anyone spot the one that doesn't quite fit?)
We even had a petting zoo this year! We had family due to be at our house around 12:30 so we just watched a bit of the parade, and then headed back home.
It was a truly lovely day, perfect for a picnic under the willow tree.
Always so much yummy food. :)
Happy Birthday Faith!
We were so happy to have Aunt Myrt join us! :)
Love our Aunt Myrt so much! Most of the gardening and canning that Faith does she learned form Aunt Myrt.
Between dinner and dessert we took a tour of the gardens to help us digest.
Our Firework Faith!
It was a simply lovely day, celebrating both our nations independence and Faith's birthday!
