Every year our local library has a 4th of July Parade for the kids. Mackaylan and I have participated in this event almost every year since she has been born. This year Lydia was able to join in on the fun!
Kids decorate their bikes, Hot Wheels, wagons, etc. and we parade down Main Street to the local park.
Everyone is dressed in their best red, white, and blue, and the sounds of laughter can be heard all along the way!
This year we took a different route and ended back at the library because of the weather, but it was fun nonetheless! Something about a parade always makes me cry so of course I teared up along the way. Crazy, I know! The sense of community always gets the best of me! We had 4 spectators this year: Granny, Granddaddy, Grams and Pop O! Yes, all from our family!
These two girls have no idea how much they are lived and adored!
We had a wonderful time at the parade, but the highlight of the entire morning was when Mackaylan met a "real journalist" and was able to spend time talking to her about her job. My little aspiring author was thrilled!!!
