Birthday to my Landry and Happy Fourth of July to everyone celebrating today!  Four years ago today, my baby was born.  My due date was the tenth and we joke around that the neighbors shooting off fireworks on the third are what put me into labor early on the 4th!  I still can't believe Landry was born on that day.  My dad said he was a little firecracker and she is!  She is spunky, funny, bright and full of LIFE!  I was watching her Friday night while some of the neighbors were shooting off fireworks and she was laughing and pointing and loving it.  Exactly like a baby born on The Fourth should!

Saturday out HOA sponsored the annual Bike Parade.  The kids decorated their bikes and the local police came out to lead the way!  Abie and one of her friends were first in line, right behind the police car!

Landry chose the easy way up the big hill!  If you notice the dad behind her and Mike, that is one of our neighbors, carrying his son's scooter.  He chose to run, rather than ride in the parade.  So fun!

The parade route ended at the pool and the kids got Bomb Pops.  Now I ask you, what is more patriotic than that?  I heart our neighborhood and I heart that there are still communities out there in America that do things like this!  I love that my kids will have these memories from their childhood.

I want to wish each and every one of you a Happy Fourth of July, here in the U.S., and a very safe and happy celebration.  After Landry's big party yesterday, we're taking it easy today.  Did you celebrate yesterday or are you celebrating today?

Thank you so much for coming to visit me.  I feel like we are great friends and could meet up at any moment and already know what is going on in each others lives.  Do you feel like that too?  This blogging thing is so strange, hard to explain to people that haven't experienced it themselves.  I'll see you guys tomorrow!

    Just looking at your photo's makes me want to live in your neighbourhood. Not just for the close community spirit, but looks like some eye candy to look out the window at, teehee.
