We were our own 4th. of July parade last night

 We all piled in the kids' van and headed to Safety Harbor for an evening of fun.  We did have to park about a mile and a half away from the location where the fireworks display was held but we put the boys in the red wagon E and I got them and Chris had Leighton in her carrier.  He led the way with Leighton (the parade beauty queen) and the back pack of supplies, followed by the float (the boys in the wagon pulled by Little Mama with the vets (Nana and Papa) bringing up the rear with more kid stuff and the big blanket.

Chris and Kristen had picked up glow sticks for the boys in lieu of sparklers.  These were so cute with little rockets on the end and the boys entertained themselves and people sitting around us until the fireworks began.

 And here is our beauty queen, Little Miss Firecracker in yet another stunning outfit (thinking I may have gotten this for with her Daddy!  She was absolutely mesmerized by the fireworks and the loud booms did not seem to bother her at all.  Until the display started, she entertained herself by 'borrowing' one of the boys' water bottles and helping herself to the ice water.
  Another nana sitting next to us gave each of the boys a glow stick bracelet which they kept insisting I wear as earrings. 

 The little guys (while the attention lasted) applauded the fireworks, yelled YEA! and tried to take off their backpacks with the, nope! no way jose!

I hope you had a lovely 4th. of July.
