A Very Portland 4th

Wow, this is the longest I've ever gone without a new blog post. I have lots of photos and news about kindergarten to share, so I'll try to catch up over the next few weeks. For now, here's s look at how we spent the 4th this year.

We started out with a bike ride to the neighborhood parade.  We got a bit of a late start as usual, so we only caught the tail end. 
"Hey, wait up!" 

 But that was okay by Anthony, because the parade ended up at the playground.

There are lots of neighborhood parades like this around town. Kids decorate bikes and wagons and usually a fire truck, popsicles and hot dogs can be found. Very small-town fun! 

 Later we had the neighbors over for a BBQ and some backyard shenanigans.

Then it was time for [legal, enjoyed from a safe distance] fireworks.

 As I looked over the photos, I noticed Anthony had 4 wardrobe changes throughout the day. That's how you know you've had a good time! We hope your holiday was a good one too.


  1. WOW! It sure looks like The Carson Family had a wonderful 4th! LOVE Anthony's Mets jersey! It sure looks like he had an amazing time! That backyard paradise sure looks inviting! I'm glad you guys had a nice time. Be well friends.
