Morning...Parade in Hebron
Waiting for the parade to start
Grandma Kathy and Erin....Laura and Daphne....The girls with their candy bags on their heads!
We even had a flyover! The parade is starting!
This is a political card handed out at the parade.
A woman is running and on the back of the card is a recipe.
I didn't know whether to laugh or cry.
There's another recipe on her website.
Jen, Addison and Mike Brawner....An old car
More old cars
An old car and an old milk truck
An old truck and a snazzy lime car
Horses and an old tractor
Batman!.....Grandma Kathy's favorite vehicle
The girls got a ton of candy and a few poppers.
Daphne handed me a popper and asked, "Grandma, how do I eat this?"
Afternoon...Party at the Sweeneys in Chicago
Kathy, Terry, Jean, Jeff, Brendan, Owen and Eileen went to the party
Brendan played in the big pool and then got warmed up by Daddy
Jean....Jeff enjoying some of the terrific food
Brendan wouldn't go in the baby pool but he really liked the sand....Owen
Owen and Brendan....Brendan, Ryan, Kelli and Owen
Evening....Fireworks at the Lahms in Lowell
Kathy and Terry went to Jean and Jeff's for neighborhood fireworks.
Jean made a pasta salad....it was all we could eat after all the great food at Sweeneys.
Brendan with olives on his fingers.
Brendan took this picture of Jean cooking
Terry and Jeff shot off some fireworks.
We could then just stand in the front yard and face any direction and see great fireworks.
There were hundreds of them....and none too loud.
Grandma Kathy brought giant sparklers.
Brendan really liked them and held 5 or 6 of them himself.
I took three pictures of Brendan here but he kept closing his eyes because he knew the flash would go off!
Jean's Pre-Birthday Celebration
Jeff had to come over to have his truck serviced by Terry so Jean and the boys came too. It was the week before Jean's birthday...but she was going camping on her birthday so I surprised her with a fun lunch and cake.
Jean helped me cook but everything was pre-cut and ready to assemble
Our bread product was a warm hot dog bun.
Brendan brought the car wash and cars up from the family room so he and Owen could play with them
Jeff sat at the kiddie table to eat....Brendan played....Grandpa Terry and Owen
