Our 4th

July 9, 2010

Here is how we spent our 4th of July.

That is Edward, waving to the participants in Minnesota’s oldest and largest 4th of July parade.  It takes place in Delano every year, and we have attended three times.  This year we sat near the end of the parade route and learned a valuable lesson.  There is far less candy at the end.  Most people had run out.  Edward didn’t seem to mind, though.

We packed a picnic lunch (for some reason Edward has been obsessed with wanting to have a picnic lately and eating on a blanket – he was very insistent about the blanket part) and stayed for a couple of hours.  We left well before the parade ended.  But two hours of firetrucks, politicians and marching bands was enough for us.  It was a very American day.

How did your family spend the 4th?

    I talked on the phone with my mom, took a nap, and did freelance work for “Vegetarian Journal.” Hmm, was that the 4th of July or just a typical Sunday for me? 😛

    Probably least celebrating ever considering our state of our
    ” health”. Dad went to church, then worked at golf course. I was alone nursing the knee! Boo hoo. Will make up for it next year

    No one told me the celebration was to end at midnight on the 4th. I’m still going, but about to run outta steam.
