We love our neighborhood on July 4. We decorate bikes the night before, eat a pancake breakfast in the morning, then line up with the crowds.
And then we head down the middle of the street, passing neighbors and friends, then getting passed by them.
Max and Ben are now old enough to meet us at the end, where the fire truck shoots up a spray, that this year came right. down. on. me.
At the end, there's a block of carnival games and treats.
Ben purposely ran through the fire truck spray. It's a highlight of the summer for him.
Also this weekend, we went to Lagoon and Lagoon-a-beach. Look at Jamesy, livin' the good life.
