4th of July

The 4th of July is my favorite holiday in Michigan.  The weather was amazing this year – highs in the 70’s and plenty of sun.  Plymouth Twp. does an amazing fireworks display on the 3rd, then the next morning a parade goes down Main St. just steps from our house.  We’ve gone to the parade each of the nine years we’ve lived here, with the except of 2009 when we watched it from Conor’s nursery window (he was 8 days old.)

We got to Township Park early to have a picnic before the fireworks.  Conor made it thru about half of the show before he fell asleep.

Conor was so excited to see the Plymouth Whalers mascot, Shooter (or he sometimes calls him “Sprayer”) but of course once he was in sight, he made sure to keep his distance.  Earlier in the parade, Paws came by and I think that may have reinforced his fear of people in costumes.
