I’ve been taking care of a sick kiddo, so this is a little late. Better late than never, I guess!
We had a wonderful 4th of July. We started off the morning in downtown Monterey for the 4th of July parade.
It was a great small-town parade! Bands, military units, veterans, community organizations, and of course, rescue vehicles.
A fire truck loaded up with a bulldozer carrying Smokey the Bear – definitely the hit of the parade with my kids!
I want to do this when I’m the same age as these ladies!
After the parade, we headed back home and grilled out with some friends for lunch.
I tried a couple of cute treats that I found on Pinterest – Rice Krispie Treat Sparklers and Patriotic Cookie Bark. (Clicking on the pictures below will take you to the respective Pinterest links.)
We had a fun time with good food and great friends. So much fun that I didn’t even take my camera out. But I guess that’s a sign of a good time!
