Happy 4th of July!!!!

Ben and Sparky preparing for the neighborhood July 4th parade. It's quite a spectacle to see the neighborhood kids with their decorated bikes and scooters. The mayor shows up and walks in the parade, and a few policemen start off the parade with their motorcycles. The parade is ended with a firetruck. I was thinking how blessed I feel that our little town has such a low crime rate that the police can go to the different neighborhood parades rather than chase down criminals.

After the parade we gather and have a neighborhood picnic complete with burgers, hot dogs, beans, potato salad, desserts, door prizes, etc., etc.

That's one cute patriotic pup!

I hope everyone had a wonderful, relaxing day! God Bless!
