This was our first 4th of July in the States since we have been back so we had fun taking advantage of the local activities. We started out the day at a local make-shift neighborhood parade which basically consisted of some Scout and dance troops riding their bikes with patriotic colors. After that we barbecued some burgers and brats at the neighbors house and listened to bad 90’s music why the kids played in the water.
I would have to say that it wasn’t bad. It wasn’t like the ones in Huntington beach when I was a kid, or the parties that our friend Cowboy would throw in Ocean beach when Lyndsey I were first married, but it didn’t need to be. It was our girls first 4th of July in the States, and Eli’s first one that he will remember and we did it up just right, as some might say in the south.
