every year our small rural community shuts down the main road and the whole neighborhood gets together for a 4th of july parade. then we all walk over to the local fire department and have a big bbq. the first parade i attended was when i was 7mo pregnant with eep and i could NOT wait to walk with him in the parade. this year i convinced my neighbor/bff samantha to walk with me! it was such a fun day!!!

yes, i really wore the headband. poor eep is going to be embarrassed of his mama one day!

thanks for walking with me samantha! i probably wouldn’t have done it without you! =)

decorated tractors, lawnmowers, atv’s!

our local all-volunteer firefighters!

do you remember this guy from last year?

i decorated eep’s stroller and walked backwards for most of the parade so he could see all of the tractors! he is OBSESSED with tractors.

it was such a fun day! a really fun weekend actually…

p.s. i’m wearing: cabi striped blouse c/o cabi, old navy cut-off denim shorts, crocs melbourne loafers c/o crocs (now only $19.99!!!) and a thrifted belt.

    Both you ladies look SO cute! Love that you walked backwards for eep – totally something I would have done. This is one of the advantages to living in a small town – looks like you had a lot of fun!! 🙂

    You look too cute! I love the headband, the striped top, and the red toms, it’s perfect for the parade! We’ll have a parade in the City as well but man I am thinking to stay in, it’s high 90s all week with 80% humidity.

    How comfy are those crocs? I’m thinking about a pair! Do they show a lot of toe cleavage?? 🙂

    You are simply just too adorable! This seems like such a fun event and I’m sure eep will never be embarrassed of you-more proud of you that you got him active and involved so young. He’ll grow up, decorate a tractor, and ride in it some year 🙂
    Happy 4th!

    Adorable outfit & I LOVE the headband!!! I love how your town is such a close knit community. Just curious – what town in San Diego is this? I never knew there are small towns in San Diego. I live in OC & always looking for cute little places for day visits.

    omg, how cute are you. he may be embarrassed some day, but he’ll secretly love that his friends tell him he has a hot mom.

    were you blogging when you were pregnant? I would love to see pictures 🙂

    OMG, you’re such a stylish mom and I’m definitely going to take my kids (when I have them) in parades like this. You look great in your 4th of July outfit too.
