but the big day kicked off with a parade. the kids are always up for a parade. here, hanna and tyson show that american pride and spirit. and a love for candy, as that's what gets thrown out at these parades.
did you see that guy cut me off??? why i oughtta....!
uh, lady, i don't want to point out the obvious, but aren't you a bit big for this ride?
all the girls and one boy. we invited along a group of friends and had a great time with all the extra young'uns around. here they are gearing up for the display. eli kept saying,"boom! shoot it! shoot it!"
a good photo of tyson and my smokin' hunk of woman.
it has come to be a tradition at fireworks displays that someone hold there hands over eli's ears. i guess he caught on pretty quick, because as soon as he knows they are coming, he starts to yell, "hold ears! hold ears!" he was so wired from the awesome show that he couldn't get to sleep until the wee hours of the night.
