4th of July 2015

We actually went to 2 fireworks displays this year - on on the eve and one on the night of.

Bright and early Saturday morning, we headed to Hillcrest for the 4th of July Neighborhood Parade.

People were already parked and ready for the festivities to begin :)

Of course, as with years past, the little boy had his own little agenda in mind.

Of course, it was good that he paused long enough to realise that the Parade had started. :)

Of course, with Daddy's help, the little boy managed to get some loot ( which he promptly forgot all about once we got home ) :)

And who could have a neighborhood parade without Classic Cars?

The hubs spotted one that was what his mother used to drive...

After the parade, it was off to the Multi Purpose Room for Homemade Ice Cream!

The little boy's favorite was Key Lime flavored ice cream.

And then of course, such bubblicious energy cannot be contained - especially when it is sugar-enhanced.... and so we went over to the play room and built forts and stacked some dominoes..

Then we stayed up late and parked along with what seemed like half of Abilene to watch the fireworks.

It was QUITE the show. We saw displays that we had never seen before, which was super cool.
