The morning of the 4th we woke up super early and made our way downtown to watch a parade. We got there early to get a good spot, and the kids had a good time hanging out with their friends, seeing the floats, and of course they loved seeing all the animals that passed.

We were invited out to the country about 30 minutes from us for some 5th of July fun. The smoker was going with tons of meats and sides. There were tons of people and kids. The kids had a blast riding the donkey and the horse. And once the sun went down, we were given our own private firework display by the men. The kids had a blast playing outside all day, and they came home dirty and crashed out in the car a few minutes after we left. I would say it was a successful day!
I would say that we had a very successful 4th of July holiday!
