We woke up the morning of the 4th of July to the Midway cannons going off at 6 am. It's a yearly tradition that jolts you right out of your dreams. We drove over to Oakley and claimed our spot on the parade route. Cody joined us this year. He's not a fan of parades, but I'm happy he came along. My parents, Cody's parents and Carson's kids minus Trevor came as well. The kids fared well and scored candy, Popsicles, water bottles and Cody even got me an Oakley t-shirt that I wore to the rodeo the following evening. Last year Heather and Dan surprised us by driving down for the parade and 4th festivities so I was missing my sister. We'll see some of them in a few weeks when Spencer gets back from his mission.
Our kids had fun with their Calderwood cousins.
