We had such a fabulous 4th of July. We started off the day at my parents' house for the East Sacramento 4th of July parade. They had a firetruck, ambulance, hummer, and some classic cars. My brother, his future wife, and future step-son joined us. Tyler and Bridget had a blast riding their decorated bikes. Chase had a good time riding in the wagon. About half way through, he wanted to ride on Daddy's shoulders.
Later on in the day we met some friends and Abe's brother and his family down at the American River. The kiddos got to play and splash in the water. The current was kind of strong, so had to watch them very carefully.
After the River, we came back to our house to let the kids swim some more. We had dinner over at Ben's house, and set off some fireworks and sparklers. The kids love that. We then watched the Cal Expo fireworks from Ben's driveway. It was a blast.
Here are some pics from the parade.
