July 4th

So I found out at 9:30am yesterday that Bay View has a parade on the 4th...and it goes right through the intersection three houses away from us! We could watch it from our front step...pretty cool. The Brewers Racing Sausages were in it, but I didn't have the camera on me until they were racing down the street...

Street sweeper...end of parade!
There were WAY more pictures but only some of them uploaded correctly.
On the way home, the monkey was very tired...the parade was 2 hours long, after all!

He fell asleep holding a stick he found at the parade!

After all that, we decided to grill out:

and Eli and Daddy read books:

Adam decided to "help" me change Elijah's poopy diaper...he gave him the pants sag:

After dinner, Elijah needed a bath to get the ketchup, BBQ sauce and other food out of his hair:


Then we decided to just hang out outside with the monkey until he had to go to bed:

I wonder what they were looking at?

Then the neighbor girl brought out sidewalk chalk:

I've got MAD art skills, hey? (That is a joke!)
Elijah really ended up with more chalk on himself than anything:

So anyway, Elijah ended up falling asleep pretty early so we knew we'd have to stay around the house to watch the fireworks...ended up that we had the best seat in the house!
