Today we went to Ridgewood's Fourth of July parade. We saw men in high feathery hats, baton twirlers, antique cars, lots of firetrucks, and a tall Uncle Sam. We even saw Shriners riding around in tiny cars (like Mommy's grandpa used to do). Annabel's favorite parts were the drummers in the marching bands and the abundance of "big trucks." Caroline liked dancing to the teenage rock band and the guy that was selling stuffed animals.
It was so hot - 102 was the high today - that on the way home, Annabel exclaimed "All done outside!"
