The next day we headed for the parade. Mom and Gary had gotten out of bed at 5:30 a.m. just to put our seats out in a perfect place for the kids to have a little room, and to visually see the parade. While I sat and held our spot, Mom and Gary took the boys to the breakfast/carnival. It was great, the boys got fed, and they won lots of prizes and I got to read.
After a very long nap we headed for the fireworks. My mom had been telling me how great the fireworks were and how great their seats were. I didn't believe her until these huge fireworks were right in my lap, it was fantastic and the kids even stayed awake through the entire thing. It was a great 4th of July.
