We decorated Olive's stroller and dressed for the 4th. Kyle and I popped in a movie the night before the festivities and blew up a ton of balloons. (I grabbed a couple of multi-color packs, and we picked out the red, white and blue ones.)
All of the parade participants followed a firetruck through the neighborhood, to our local elementary school playground. Olive loved it. (OK. Here she just wanted to get out of her stroller and run around.)
We won a prize: most unique.
Olive ran to the bounce house. However, she was satisfied with the bouncy step and never entered the house.
We enjoyed some snow-cones.
And Olive ran, and ran, and ran under the covered pavillion while we chatted with some adults and marveled at her energy.
