4th of July

I hope you had a great holiday weekend!  We spent a lot of time working, and a lot of time relaxing!  We had a quite a bit of things we wanted to get done around the yard and the weather was perfect for it.  I'll post some pictures of what we did later (my camera battery is currently dead...)

We celebrated Independence Day by going to Allendale's parade.  It's been a few years since I've been able to go and it was especially neat because we met up with Alecia and Ovi and their family and this was Ovi's first 4th of July experience!
Everyone stood up and clapped in honor of the vetrans in the parade

You know you're in Allendale when half the parade is tractors!

 I thought this was a neat float from a local church.

I loved this float!

This little line of trucks all had signs with some very important messages for us!

And then, the float we'd all been waiting for...Altar*d Life!  Our church's praise band!  It was really fun to see them performing on the float.  I did make a movie, but the sound quality is really bad! 

I hope you had a great 4th of July weekend!


  1. We all had to work yesterday, so we missed the Allendale happenings. It looks like a nice parade and what a fun day for Ovi!

  2. Looks like fun. We didn't know of any parades here in our city and I miss them!

  3. That looks like it was lot of fun.


Thanks for reading my blog! Leave me a comment so I can read your thoughts on my thoughts! :)
