We spent $8 and one hour decorating a wagon in red, white, and blue for tomorrow’s old fashioned pet parade.
Although the kids are still pretty little we know they’ll love it. And since we have no idea when we’ll get to celebrate another 4th of July we’re doing it, well, biggish.
It feels like an eternity ago that I was a kid riding my bike in the parade. Dressing in silly outfits and having my own children in the parade was a million miles from my mind.
But here I am, so excited about some old fashioned small town parade and festivities.
We’ll hit up the free pancake breakfast, enjoy the parade, and roam around the park filled with three-legged races, hoola hooping, and other “old fashioned” games.
And though the boys are far too young to understand what it is to be American, they will understand that it’s something worth celebrating.
Celebrate, we will.
Happy 4th my friends.
Q for you: If you are American, what are you doing for the 4th?
