Fourth of July Weekend

We had a busy Fourth of July weekend.  Friday night, Kyle noticed I had blueberries that needed to be used up, and I only had one pie crust in the freezer and didn't want to make the mess, so I used the extra to make stars for a holiday theme.  Blueberry pie is Kyle's favorite, so there isn't much left now!
I have been wanting to go to Junction City to their parade, so off we went on Saturday.  Abby went with us, but she commandeered the camera (that is military talk for JC) because I wasn't doing a good enough job.  Here are some of her pictures which are probably about as interesting as a dolphin show unless you are in it.
I wish they are worn their formal attire, but they did shout out interesting cadences.
Horses and red shirts for you know who.  I might send this in to PW for her next patriotic picture contest.  McDonald's, the flag, and men on horses in red shirts - All American for sure.
Abby's BF isn't really in Florida.
She took this while I was over at the McD's going to the bathroom.  We did buy fruit smoothies there, so it wasn't like we just used the facilities.
This is for all the Republican out there.  The little boy in the harness got a lot of attention from the parade walkers.  We can do that in a few years with Larry.
Abby's BF got the end of the route as a hot dog, donned the Papa John's suit, and made it through the parade route again.
The UMC bus.  One arm waving out windows that don't open more than that.  The Southern Baptists one-upped them by handing out water a couple of groups ahead.  The bus was decorated nicely.
This shot gets included because it shows my hair after it got sprinkled on a few times.
What is a Fourth of July parade without a blow up Statue of Liberty?
For some odd reason, these kids were with a car collecting group.  
On Sunday we went to Wichita to a shower for Tamara and the baby, then out to her parent's house.  Some of the younger people got in the pool, but it rained off and on all day.  It was a fun time visiting with her family and their friends.

  1. I need to make a blueberry pie. It's Randy's favorite, too.
