The kiddie parade has become a tradition for us.
This year we included our buddies, Hayden and Lane.
Not a successful group picture.
We had some non-participation from a few. ;-)
We ran into Peighton's sweet friend, Erin who was also decked out in 4th of July craziness.
The boys chose to be the "Gator Boys" and won the "Most Patriotic" award.
Must have been something going on behind them!
They drove it like they stole it all the way down the hill!
But they did have time to wave at their fans.
Downhill on a scooter is a bit more difficult.
Hayden needed some assistance with breaking.
We all watched the parade and got lots of candy!
Then the real fun began!
Dustin and Mike put a WHOLE pig on the grill at like 6:00 that morning.
This was the result that afternoon.
Good thing they had a good set of gloves!
We rigged up a "table" on a few sawhorses, my welding sawhorse and some boards.
We might need to upgrade for the next time!
He had to "rest" a bit.
Then they took the meat off and we all dug in!
It was awesome!
The kids tried out sparklers.
The solo cups make great hand protectors!
Preston loved it and did quite a few.
Lane enjoyed it as well.
Hayden was not overly thrilled with them but did get closer than Peighton.
There are NO pictures of Peighton doing even one sparkler because she completely freaked out whenever one got near her!!!!!
And Lane was really ticked off when his sparkler went out!!!!
We sat in our backyard and saw 3 different fireworks shows.
A great day and night!
