July 4th

We had a really fun 4th.  First of all, summer came to Western Washington a day early and we had gorgeous weather!  Our community has a little parade and festival with bouncy houses, pony rides, petting zoo, face painting, etc.  We've been at Crescent Bar for the last few 4ths but this year we were able to go and the girls really enjoyed it.  They're really into horses right now so they loved the pony rides.  We waited in line forever but they were really good and patient.  After the pony rides, we went to the petting zoo, then on to the bouncy houses.  While they waited in line, I went and got some free popcorn and cotton candy which was a big hit.

We went home for lunch, then later went to our neighbors' to play on their new bouncy house that their girls got for their birthdays (their birthdays are both in July).  Then we came home to grill burgers and hot dogs, and then after that the same neighbors came over to shoot off some small fireworks with us.

After they left, it was bedtime but the girls were watching all the neighbors' fireworks out of our windows upstairs.  Our neighbors put on a pretty good show!  We were also watching the Lake Union fireworks show on TV, so the girls ended up not going to bed until close to 10:30, I think.
