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?
