For the last few years we’ve been attending our city’s 4th of July Parade it’s a fun (although early) start to a long, fun filled day of celebrating our great nation, and spending some quality time together as a family. We always set up at the same place, right at the starting point of the parade. We like this location because it’s usually pretty easy for us to get a place to sit, and since it’s at the beginning the participants are full of energy, and as a bonus we get the whole thing over with sooner.
I never try too hard to get “good” pictures during the parade as the backgrounds are bad ( gas station, strip mall, grocery store), the light’s all wrong, and I’m pretty much stuck in one place, with that in mind here are a few shots I liked and thought I’d share.
I’m glad that I don’t know that girl and that she’ll never see this, otherwise I think I would be in some serious trouble.
This year the weather was perfect, 70’s, overcast with just a few scattered raindrops here and there. We had a great time, kids got candy, and I didn’t get sunburned.
