Happy 4th

We had a very busy 4th of July week! On Thursday the kids and I went to downtown Glendale where they had a patriotic concert in the park. The music was really great, but man was it hot! The next day the kids went to my parents and decorated the trailer for a little parade they were going to participate in around the neighborhood. I think they played more than helped decorate, but they had a good time.
Early on the 4th my parents and I took the kids up to Prescott where we met up with some friends and watched an awesome parade. There were tons of horses, guns and tractors so the kids were very entertained!
Our favorite Senator, almost President, was also there. He was walking down the street and came over right up to Little Man and asked if he could shake his hand. Of course he would not even look at him or even think about shaking his hand *sigh*.
There were tons of flags so the kids got very good at standing and taking off their cute hats.
They really do love parades.
The baby was great too! She didn't even cry when they shot off guns right in front of us.
After the parade and lunch we came back to town, met up with Hubby and went out to his Dad's house for a few hours and then went to my parents for their little parade. Little Mimi was really happy that night, but I didn't get it on camera!
She is at the tongue sticking out and blowing rasberry stage. She thinks she is hilarious!
Here are the kids on their nicely decorated bikes as we went around the block with the tractor and trailer as well. They had a lot of fun and then came back and went swimming in Grandpa's new stock tank (aka swimming pool).
The next day we left to go camping in Payson. For having done so much driving they did great and we had an interesting time camping, but that is another post:)
