Happy 4th of July!

Ooh, we have already had a busy day and it's only just past noon.  This morning Ingrid and I headed downtown to go to the fourth of July parade.  I just love hometown parades, they're so fun for kids!  Ingrid thought that running into the street to pick up candy was just about the best thing ever.  And she loved the fire truck and school bus that went past.  Also a hit were the baton twirlers.

































It is hot and sunny out and it was a strenuous walk home, but I'm glad we went and I am once again so glad we live so close to what's happening in Ann Arbor!  No more driving everywhere, it's so refreshing.

I just got the cupcakes out of the oven and we will be decorating them after naptime.  Brendan invited some friends from the lab over for a cookout this afternoon, so we will be having even more fun this afternoon!  I love holiday weekends :)  Hope yours has been good, even if you aren't in the US and don't care it's the 4th!
