We decorated bikes the night before with friends.
And then we were ready to go!
I love this yearly tradition. Hundreds of people parade down the middle of the road for several blocks, and at the end the firefighers sometimes even give us a water shower. Then we have to drag ourselves and bikes and scooters all the way back up all those blocks to our house.
This year we rested for a while, then went swimming with the Thorntons, then rested for a while, then had a barbecue with the Richards, then rested for a while, then went to fireworks at 10! A long, fun day.
