4th of July

We had a great time at the neighborhood parade and festivities on the 4th of July!  The parade was great - it was old school with decorated bikes and trailers decked out with streamers.  It reminded me of our neighborhood parade that we went to when I was growing up.

The part that was completely different was the other festivities!  The fire house has all the trunks out so the kids could climb in them, and they (for the first time we have seen) had a fireman who would help the kids hold a fire hose and spray the windows - making them flips around - in this pretend little house.

They also had horses, snacks, bounce houses, and a petting zoo.  This might be the most fun we have ever had a petting zoo.  Will happily wrangled the animals - bunnies, chicks, goats, a potbelly pig!, a lama, ducks, and a lamb.  He held his favorite bunny (feeding him one pellet at a time) over and over.  We talk about when we will see that bunny again and Will is convinced that bunny will be so happy to see him.  He was the fluffiest bunny I have ever seen!

We left the fun a little early to head down to Austin for the long weekend!
