4th of July ( Part 1 )

Saturday Excursion with Grandad

What does one have to do with the other? Well, we sneaked in a mini excursion with Grandad - around the block, over to church for the 4th of July neighborhood parade. I know, we got off easy this week :)

Grandad had quite the vista view, but Jaxon was raring to go go go, threatening to turn over his stroller in his attempts to escape the dreaded contraption.

who climbed over hills and vales, traversing vast parking lots and corridors, AWAY from where the "action" was.

Oh, and while we're at it, let's trespass onto some unknowing stranger's front yard and play with their mulch!

To be fair, I did catch glimpses of the parade, and there were always pictures from the Dad Cam, as well as in the paper :)

Happy 4th of July, y'all.

Now the Lord is the Spirit; and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty.
