4th of July Fun in the 'Hood

Every 4th of July,
our neighborhood hosts a little "parade"...
...with ice cream and water games afterwards.


The kiddos and I got all dressed up... our patriotic garb.
Jungle Girl chose to walk our
"patriotic polka-dotted pooch,"
in the parade...
 ...while the younger kiddos rode their
decorated scooters.


Many families participated in the parade...
...with various forms of transportation.


After "marching" down the main rode of the 'hood,
we met at the end culdesac for... cream!


After ice cream,
we met in the common area for some fun!
There were hula-hoops and bouncy balls to play with... well as water balloons.

But the "star attraction" of the day was
the dunking booth.

The kiddos that wanted took turns being dunked 
by other kiddos
(and parents!)...
(Some of them OBVIOUSLY liked it more than others...
I hope Little Wild Man will enjoy it more next year!)


By 12:30,
we had all the mess cleaned up
and were collapsed on the couch,
enjoying the air conditioning...


We hope y'all had a lovely
Independence Day, too!
