Small Town 4th of July

The Parade begins with the Color Guard by Lucy Mercer/A Cook and Her Books

I hope you're having a great Fourth of July, enjoying the best of summer and the blessings of family. Our Independence Day begins with a parade and ends with fireworks. In between, there's barbecue and ice cream and leftover birthday cake. These are pictures from last year's parade.

Seeing the band reminds me that I marched in this parade as a high schooler. In full uniform. No t-shirts and shorts for us, (Kids today don't know how lucky they are.) 

Too loud.

Politicians, incumbent and wannabe, are always represented.

Christopher Elf is a regular at the parade.

We view the parade from the lawn of the armory.
The soldiers park their equipment and let the kids climb on - like this tank.

God Bless America!
