Independance Day 2012!

I love the 4th of July.  I always have.  BUT the 4th in Riverdale is THE best!  Mike and I have been involved in some form or another since Matt was a baby, but this was my last year being over the kids games.  I finally had to say "no more" and it was one of the hardest things ever.  But with the 5K that my family now loves to run, the breakfast that Mike needs to be at, and the parade Mike has to be in......this will be my last year running the games. :( That being's how our day went:

Mike and I went to set up the kids games at 5:30

Mike, Tyler, Matt and Isaac ran the 5K while I got Lucas and Nick ready

 All of us rode in the Old Glory Days parade and had a blast throwing candy at everyone:)

We finished the parade and then rode our bikes to the Frandsens to watch the end of the parade
 Then we flew back up to the park to run the kids games

 We cleaned up the games, went home and crashed for a while.....

THEN I made this awesome TOTALLY Matt safe trifle
 And we had a great BBQ and fireworks with the Ovesons, Paul and Clerie and the Neff's...Livi liked the fireworks but Addison DID NOT! :)

 PHEW!  I can't wait for next year!
