EF Parade Collage

I was originally going to post this on Friday with my new schedule and all but since Friday actually IS the 4th, I decided to post today instead (and will be taking Fri off…if that wasn’t clear…lol…not that it matters…world’s longest annoying run-on sentence…are you still here?). We typically celebrate the 4th on the day of our annual community parade but now that Eep is getting older, we are excited to watch the fireworks this year. Before I had my son, I always thought the infant/baby stage would be my favorite but I have to tell you that EVERYTHING is so much more fun with him with each passing year. Although I wish time would slow down just a bit. They (whoever they are) weren’t kidding when they said that “the days are long but the years are short”.  But I digress. These pics are from this years parade and once again we had a blast! The first year we lived here, we just watched the parade…the next I walked with my decorated stroller, last year we drove the Polaris and this year we had even more flare and passengers on the back of the Polaris (my posse’s gettin’ bigger…ahhhh…bonus points if you remember “Posse on Broadway” by Sir Mix-a-Lot…LOVED that song back in the day)!

P.S. One of my IRL buddies (the blondie in the top pic) started her own blog The CHIC Insomniac. She is hilarious…I hope you guys will stop by and say hello!
