We had a wonderful time watching the parade with dear friends. The kids just love the floats and the characters and the bands. Such special memories! After the parade we came home for lunch and naps, even M took a nap. Brandon decided to work at home and I was able to get a walk in. Yahoo!!! Once the kids woke up we walked down to the festival for Fish and Chips. The kids calls the fries "fish chips" and they LOVE them! We did our best to support the local Kiwanis with several purchases! This was our first year not taking a stroller. The kids were not excited about the hike home. We ended up carrying them a lot of the way.
We ate true dinner at home and then the kids and I watched Mary Poppins while Brandon worked. I fell asleep, but they managed to stay awake all the way until the fireworks. We enjoyed watching them with some friends at our favorite spot and then came home and crashed. It was a full and wonderful day!
