July 4th 2012

We woke up at 6 am on the 4th of July.  We were heading to the parade in downtown Edmond and if you want a good spot you gotta get there early.  So the all of the men packed up the lawn chairs, blankets, and coolers and took off in search of the perfect parade watching spot.  I finished making
"pigs in a blanket,"  and loading up cups with juice.  We called the guys when were on our way to find out where they set up.

 Mom found two little firecrackers to walk her speed all the way from the car to our spot.  Check out the girls visors, Mom made them the night before.  They turned out so cute!

 We had about an hour to kill till the parade started, so we all snacked on muffins and piggies in a blanket,

 Our whole crew!

 The girls loved watching and waving to everyone that went by.

The parade was over.  It was time to go home, rest a little then get dinner ready.  We had the Henson's over for BBQ sandwiches, creamed corn, cole slaw, cold beer and a pitcher of sangria.   After dinner we piled in the truck to go see fireworks at the UCO campus. 

 Fireworks didn't start till 10.  Dad played football with the kids to help pass the time.

Time for the show.  It was a beautiful display!!!  We didn't get home till midnight.  It was a LONG day filled with lots of fun memories.  So glad mom and dad could spend it with us!
