let freedom ring!!!


happy fourth of july to all!!!!





We went to the celebration parade last nite and the weather just gave us a scare with wind and rain...couldn't let it RAIN ON OUR PARADE!!! but rain it did....before the event!!!!

we temporarily took cover during the hard rain...


of course miss maddysen got to use her umbrella!



BUT SOME HOW WHEN YOU PUT MADDYSEN AND XANDER TOGETHER...HMMM IT'S SEEMS LIKE MORE THAN A STORM BREWING...LOL



maxx just couldn't figure out why a swimming pool of water formed in the tray of his stroller...aren't there just supposed to be COOKIES IN THERE?



we stuck it out and when the parade began...the sky looked threatening but blew over pretty quick...

THE PARADE BEGINS!!!

FIRETRUCKS!!!! maxx was in awe! don't know which he loves more...

fire trucks...



or CHOO-CHOO'S!!!



of course there was lots of SUGAR to be had...tossed from the groups passing by...





and one church group passed out freezies to the kids!



and the baton twirlers got maddy to thinking...hmmmm i think i LIKE THAT!!!!!




during the parade the weather behaved for us!

"PUH-LEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEZE UNCLE KEVIN...BUY US SOME JUNK!"
the guy walking by with the toy cart...announced as he passed.."JUNK FOR SALE"..

he explained...that that's all he hears from the parents..."you don't want that it's junk..."...lol...so he's marketing it...hee hee

uncle kevin got the kids some poppers...(you toss them down and they pop)






hope you enjoyed the parade with us!





have a wonderfully safe weekend! We will be heading up to the cabin in the northwoods of wisconsin! so everyone BEHAVE! i will have a bit of computer access so i will be WATCHING YOU ALL!

BIG HUGZ AND LOVE

Yay! Made me feel all patriotic and happy to watch this. Felt like I was there. I like the black & white photo with the flag colored at the end. Perfect!
