Snapshot Saturday, 4th of July

Happy 4th of July!
Waiting for the neighborhood parade, 7-4-15
It's a one car and many bike parade
Oddly the song coming from the car as it drove past was I Wish I Were in Dixie...which is not the right song for the occasion.

There were quite a few dogs on the parade route.
We waved flags as the neighborhood kids went by
Some of the bikes stayed with the parade, but, as happens every year, there were a few that races through the course way ahead of others.
And then there was one straggler

Patriotic rose

This photo, taken by our neighbor a few years ago, shows our flag and house. He sat patiently waiting for someone in the neighborhood to send up some fireworks and was rewarded for his patience with this shot. (Photo by Keith Stapley.) 

Happy Independence Day!

Snapshot Saturday is hosted by West Metro Mommy Reads..

  4. Neighborhood parades are the best! Looks like everyone enjoyed yours.
    Thank you for visiting my blog and leaving a comment.

  5. Love these photos. I adore parades where everyone can be included. One year, my husband's family decided to enter our town's Frontier Day Parade. We used a Cinderella coach and we all rode inside, with a big sign saying The Nance Family!

    1. Wow. That must have been fun. Where did they get the Cinderella carriage?
