The firework let down

I hope everyone had a wonderful 4th of July. We had a great one minus the fireworks.

Because it's sooooo HOT and DRY here, the county I live in and the surrounding counties decided to ban all fireworks.

It really started with just aerial fireworks but it quickly became ALL fireworks. And while I'm sad we didn't get to sit out side and go OOHHH and AAHH, I'm thankful that our city managers passed the ordinance. I really didn't want my house or my neighbors house to burn to the ground. And I thought we would have a fun nuts in my neighborhood that might just try shooting off a few but nope they were clearly saving them for New Years Eve.

My neighborhood puts on an annual parade, complete with games, food, and entertainment.

R2 rode his bike in the 4th of July parade and I even decorated it. I even put red, white, and blue hairspray in his hair. He looked so cute. And I took a few pictures but clearly have forgotten how to up load them because guess what, no pictures!

Anyway, I'm off to find a cool spot and some A/C turned down to about 40 degrees because I'm still trying to recoup from the heat.

Y'all have a great day.

We couldn't have fireworks, either! We really just did a bunch of nothing, but it was nice!
