4th of July!

We had a great day today.  We took Ayden Jane over to the island for the annual parade.  We set up camp about 9:30 for the parade which came by us closer to 11.  We were prepared with snacks and toys so Ayden Jane had a great time.  She loved the parade as it came by and she was so funny as they threw stuff to her.  The candy she collected to give to Mckenna later.  Some of the floats threw things like strings of beads or little bracelets.  Ayden Jane was so excited that they thought of her and passed out some things that weren't sugar!  Hilarious.  "Mom, how did they know I can't eat the sugar candy?  They were so nice to throw beads to me!"

Next it was over to the beach.  We played in the ocean with the rest of the entire local population until about 2:30.  That was one long day in 90 something heat for a 4 year old!.  After a rest at home it was on to grandma and grandpa's for a cook out followed by a dip in the pool.  Home by 8:30 and asleep by 9:30.  No fireworks this year, but there is always next year!

Great day.
