The holiday started off with a booming 6:00 a.m. cannon salute and an early morning run that involved half the family.
Adrie ran the 1-mile kids run in 8:18. She placed 2nd for girls and won a Sacajawea dollar coin.
Dad and Brynn ran the Liberty 5k
Dad crossed the finish line with a time of 21:48 which is pretty darn good!
Brynn made it in 25:10, a 9-minute improvement over last year!
The day was only beginning. We returned home to quickly get dressed, showered, and then headed to the parade
We joined our friends and neighbors later in the day for a big potluck and BBQ, played games and visited. We watched the firework display from the park and then returned home for more fireworks from all the neighbors. The whizzing and popping went on until almost midnight and we watched it all! What a day.
