Happy 4th of July!

It was a soggy 4th of July, here in Philly, birthplace of our nation’s independence!  We started the day by going to a parade with Husband’s parents in his hometown.  The kids enjoyed the fire engines and all the kids on bikes and of course the candy the politicians were tossing at us.

After the parade, we went back to Gramps and Nana’s and had hoagies for lunch, ’cause nothing says "Happy Birthday, America" like an Italian sandwich.

Then tonight, if the weather holds, we are supposed to attend a neighborhood cookout and amateur fireworks display.  The sky looks rather ominous at the moment, but we’re holding onto a thread of hope.  At least the rain held off for the parade this morning.

I hope everyone’s enjoying their 4th of July celebrations!
