We made the most of our celebration of America's independence. On the 3rd we had a family BBQ at my mom's house.
The next day we took part in the annual 4th of July bicycle parade over in Grandpa Don's neighborhood. This year the Cures joined in. Ethan went over to their house and helped Aaron drive over two of his special tractors. They were a big hit. Since they are farm equipment they can be driven on the regular streets. Lots of people gave them the "thumbs up" as they passed. Ethan looks great on a tractor. He says that he may have to get himself one.
1. Don't wear a dress while driving a tractor, especially one that buttons down the front;
2. Flip flops, no matter how cute they are, are not ideal tractor driving shoes;
3. It is better if the driver is more than 5'2" tall.
However, if you are motivated, you can still make it work. I look forward to when I can do it again.
They joined us in the morning to decorate the bikes and tractors.
