every year, we spend the 4th of july up in the mountains…in a place that is not even really a town, but more of a little community. they have a sweet, old timey parade each year, complete with decorated tractors, a brass band, and lots of red, white, and blue. the children love it and have so much fun marching in the parade. plus, who doesn't love ending a warm summer's night with sparklers and fireworks?
