Happy Fourth!

In addition to Grandma and Grandpa and the Osbornes we had invited our other cul de sac neighbors to join us at the beach for the 4th.  The Quillins and the Adams arrived in time for the parade.

The kids got ready for the parade by making a visit to the fire work stand in town.  Their purchases included some sparklers, a gnome rubber ducky and some patriotic necklaces.

 They also bought temporary tattoos for all the kids.

We staked out our spot along the parade route. It was windy but not too cold.  Jim and Declan played catch.

 The parade was fun as usual.  Always love it when the flag comes by.

I think this car should come home with me!

There were lots of fun characters in the parade.

And even a float that you could shoot baskets up on to!

After the parade we went back to the house for some lunch.  We barbequed hamburgers and hot dogs and had lots of other good food too.

 We have the best neighbors!!
