July 4, 2018: Typically we are at the Lake for this holiday, but the new baby altered our plans a little bit this year. We know it’ll go back to “normal” next year, and really we were able to enjoy some neighborhood activities that are always missed! It was a HOT one, but the bike parade was going to proceed. I decked E’s bike out with Dollar-Tree decor, and learned some things about how we would do it differently next year…she needs shorts, and no pieces around her legs. Plus her helmet made her extra hot…so we ended with walking and me carrying the bike. WATER BOTTLE will be on me next year! Then the local fire department arrived to spray water on the kids…which was awesome! B & C got there right as it stopped, but the nice firefighters turned on the side water for B. They’re the best. Back at the house we had a few fireworks thanks to the neighbors, and played in the cul-de-sac with our low-grade show for awhile.
