4th of July 2012

Happy 4th of July!  It was very hot here again today.  But, we still ventured out for our city's parade.  This was the first year in several years that we actually got to WATCH the parade.  Last year we were out of town getting our Izzy girl, and for about five years prior to that we were IN the parade.  It was nice to be able to just sit and watch it, even though it was so freaking hot.  While we were waiting for the parade to begin, I noticed these two sweet little boys sitting so calmly and patiently under an umbrella.


Here are some shots from the parade.  I have been having fun editing my pictures of the parade.







We spent the afternoon at home after melting under the heat watching the parade.  We just estivated in the air conditioning until supper time.  We went to get a quick bite to eat and then went down to the river access park to wait for our city's fireworks to start.  It was still very hot and I sat with an ice pack behind my back for part of the time we were down there.  The area we chose to watch the fireworks from became pretty busy by the time the fireworks started.  I found these two gentleman sitting in the best front row seats ever.


Here are a few more shots of the wait time before the fireworks and a couple shots of the fireworks.






Here I am waiting for the fireworks to start.



Today's word for the photo a day on Instagram was "fun."  This is was my picture for today.
