This was the most interesting 4th of July celebration that I have ever experienced. The high was only 75 degrees and it was overcast. I think it kept a lot of people at home. However, Stuart, Michelle, Jacob, and I had a great time. There are some floats that haven't changed since I was a little girl. Every year the parade begins with flags being carried by the sheriff's posse. Other regulars include the high school cheerleaders on the fire truck, the marching band, and of course my favorite Dr. Long on his riding mower.
And here he is post-cupcake:
Jacob has turned into a little fish this summer. He will jump to anyone and has no fear of venturing into the deep end. He even will put his face in the water. We still need to work on closing our mouth so that we don't drink the pool, but overall I was really impressed.
Something strange happened when we were all in the pool, but it was like we were all kids again. Between the dunking and shooting each other with water guns, it was insane...but it was fun! Roger decided to challenge Alisa to a little contest with one of the noodles. The winner got the other wet. He lost every time.
I have some other pictures, but these are the highlights. Obviously I took all of these and I hope to get some from Michelle that actually have me in the pictures. I will post those as soon as I get them.
