Our little town had a parade on the Fourth of July. We sat with a bunch of our friends and watched the parade. Mostly it was cars with town businesses/leaders and such throwing candy. The candy was the big excitement for the kids.
Sophie's group of actors who are performing Midsummer Night's Dream in the park walked the parade in costume to promote the play.
After relaxing in the afternoon we went and helped clean the church since it was our Ward's (The newly formed ward) turn. And then headed to our former Bishop's house for a BBQ and Fireworks.
A rather laid back 4th. But the kids loved getting to do sparklers and watching the fireworks close up. Henry especially was riveted. This firebug would have loved to get to light them. As we drove home that night the kids said "This is the Best Fourth of July Ever". I guess that means it was a success.
