Photos in Review: Celebrating the Fourth of July {2012}

by Cate on July 5, 2012

Family, friends, fireworks, food.  How could you possibly not love the fourth of July?  Although what I would really love right now is a mandatory recovery day on July 5th.  Because, folks, I am spent.

And there is nothing better than a small town parade on the 4th, and I love this one especially because we’ve been going to it for some 35+ years.  My sister and I rode in many floats in this parade when we were kids, and I love that our own kids now get to enjoy watching the same parade.

Parade.  Summer food.  Fireworks.  A perfect day.  A perfect day that netted over 400 pictures.  I’ve whittled it down to the 43 best ones.  And if you didn’t get to go to a small town parade or celebrate the 4th, I do believe this is almost the next best thing.  Right?

I think at some point in my life I participated in a parade like this with my Girl Scouts troop, but the memories are hazy. Looks like a fun day!
