My Independence Day- Just the Highlights

1. Yesterday Mandy and I watched a very long parade.  This girl is great company!


2. She did however, say the words "You brought knitting to a parade?" with a tone of disbelief.  
But, I'm almost done with this sock and I want to be done soon.  

And did I mention that the parade was long?


3. We sat through the very long parade (which featured way too many firetrucks) so that we could see Ken & Katie march with a local drum & bugle corps.   They were in the very last division.

Here's Katie marching past us...


4. Shall we talk about the fact that I waited 2 1/2 hours to see them 
and when they passed me they weren't playing?  No, let's not.  I'm trying to get over it.

5. I also got hit in the face with an Almond Joy by some overly-enthusiastic parade participant.  
I would have preferred a Reese's cup.

6. And I got a sunburn.

7.  Then we went to a picnic at my mom's house where I chatted with my 2-year-old niece.  She is seriously one of the most entertaining people I know. (She wants to make it clear that she is NOT a baby.  She reminds us all the time.)

8.  We did not attend any big fireworks displays.  
Instead we stayed home and watched Ken light some off in the back yard.  
I like it better that way.

How was your 4th of July?
Give me the highlights in the comments!

Did anyone throw chocolate at you?
