We started off our Independence day with pancakes at home and a short history lesson during the food. Then we went to our small town's parade, via school bus. I'm pretty sure everyone in town showed up. Don't we have lovely blue skies?
By that time we were hot, tired, our brains had melted from the sun, and coated in sun screen. So we showered everyone quickly and all took naps. It felt good to take off the eight layers of sunscreen. We woke up just in time to eat a late dinner, and then drive up to the fireworks!
Then finally the fireworks came, we are on the eastern side of our time zone which is great because fireworks start a whole hour earlier here than they do in Utah. That means we can go to bed an hour earlier. Yes, I'm old.
