4th of July parade and such

Every year my kids love going to the local parade. Mostly because of the candy and toys that get thrown. And every year a couple in my ward invites a bunch of people over to their house to watch the parade (since they live along the parade route) and eat lunch after. I spent the time during the parade sitting in the shade of a tree while Russ watched the kids and played with water guns. The last part of the parade is a water parade where the people going by are spraying everyone. The fire engine ones tend to win that one. They can get a whole lot of people really wet. I personally move out of range. Probably would have felt nice to get wet on that hot day, but I really didn't want to get wet. After lunch we went to see the local production of Disney's Beauty and the Beast. Anyway, here are a few pictures from the parade and lunch after. If you notice, each of the kids has a sack. They got those to collect candy.
Can't quite tell in the picture, but Jimmy was quite wet.

Russ and his co-conspirators with water guns and such. They got each other nicely, too.

All of the kids there loved looking at a small pond. Makes me really know why I don't want a pond.
These two pictures are of Jimmy riding the small zip line that was in the backyard at the lunch. There was quite a lineup of kids waiting to do it. He was the only one of or kids who braved it this year though.
