Happy Independence Day!

We love to be in Delta for the Independence Day celebrations.  There's something special about being in a small town for the holiday.  It is a big deal.  Whereas, when we've stayed in the city for the festivities, it feels more like just an extra day off work.  Here the whole town comes together for a parade and fun in the park. Roy likes the jet fly-over we usually get.  It didn't happen this year because of budget costs and such but we did have a fun fly over by a few locals in their small planes!  The kids like the parade - and the candy that gets thrown.  I like being where I know people.  I like being able to look around and see many familiar faces in the crowd as well as catch up with people I haven't seen all year or longer.
 After the parade there is a community party in the park.  Grandpa bought wrist bands for the kids so they could play in the bouncy houses set up around the park.  He also gave in to buying them snow cones.  Those kids sure know how to work their grandpa!
A probably had the most fun playing on the bouncy houses.  Unfortunately, K was too hot and tired.  She decided she just wanted to go back to the house.  It was time to take the baby home anyway so Roy and I headed out leaving Grandpa and Grandma to watch D and A.
Tonight, D went to the derby with Uncle Justin and Aunt Jessica.  He loves to go watch the cars smash into each other.  Then they watch the city fireworks before coming home for the night.
I hope you all had a happy, patriotic and family filled day too!
