A flippin' sweet 4th of July

Pretty much nothing beats the 4th of July weekend in a small town in Idaho. 
 Throw in a trip to the sand dunes, a lake and a bunch of cousins
 followed by snowcones, awesome uncles, and a parade. How can you beat it?  
All that was missing was a llama, a game of tether ball and a flippin' skit.
Good times. Except the part where the small town fire truck drenches you unexpectedly at the end of said parade. But maybe that depends on who you ask.

  4. Lovely photos kiddo...I was thinking about you when I went to a local antique store and saw a hexie quilt sort of like the one you found last year.

    We enjoyed our small town parade too...nothing better than the fife and drum corp going by and then shooting off their cannon!;)
