July 4th Parade

On Independence Day, we spent the morning at the City of Fairfax Parade. It was awesome. I didn't expect it to be nearly as big as it was. We had McGruff the Crime Dog, the Chick-Fil-A Cow, flying candy, lots of convertibles, many Fire Departments, Bands from as far away as Minnesota, Veterans, The Shriners, Police Departments, The Redskins Band, BIG balloons (I mean Big!), Floats, boy scouts, dance troupes, Girl Scouts, local officials, and the Lt Governor!
Even Better was the fact the parade was 2 blocks from our house so Granda came over and we were able to walk to the route and not have to get there early.
The kids enjoyed it. Sybella waved at all the participants and clapped for the performances. I didn't even manage to get a picture of the boys because they sat in the front row and never moved. I also forgot to take a picture of Cooper, who slept through most of the parade but looked adorable in his red, white, and blue attire. His shirt had stars on it and said "Born in 2009." He was quite cute. Here are some shots of the parade and Sybella waving. Enjoy~

Happy 223rd Birthday to the USA!
