This is Shannon. She is babysitting Liam this summer. Yesterday she invited us to come sit with her family for the Fourth of July parade that her younger brother, Adam, was marching in. Adam plays the trombone and Ian is his leader in the scouts.
Shannon and her friend camped out all night so we had good seats at 9am today. Shari (Shannon's Mom) and the kids showed up shortly after we did and Liam was really happy to see all his friends!
I love parades and anything else festive on any given holiday. Seeing the syncronized highway patrol motorcyles, hearing fire engine sirens and the local marching bands makes it feel like the Fourth of July. LOVE IT!
It was SO hot out there and Liam got really irritable shortly after we arrived. He did have a good time, though, and was really taken with the marching bands.

Editor's note: We went to the pool and the cute pictures I had in mind DID NOT happen as Liam WAS NOT fond of the water. Plus it turned overcast outdoors and Liam was beyond exhausted and wouldn't take a nap before we left, so it wasn't the optimal timing for this "first". Oh well... another time...
