Happy 4th of July

We made it home from our cruise in time for 4th of July.  The girls were excited to decorate bikes and scooters (even though last year's decor was still attached and we had to remove it first and start again.)  The Rehagens were in town this year so they joined in.  And of course we met up with the Schwarz's for the "traditional" 4th celebration.  We walked/rode in the parade, went to the picnic (conveniently located on our cul-de-sac again), and then had everyone over to swim and cookout.  We covered the scaffolding with helium balloons and I shop-vacced the boards covering the new back deck and we were able to use the new outdoor space as best as possible.  It lived up to the girls expectations and we followed tradition dating back for at least 3 years!! (According to the Mounts and the Schwarzs you MUST go to the parade, compete in the hula hoop and watermelon-eating contests, and then swim and cookout or it isn't 4th of July.)
