Happy Belated 4th of July

I just had to share some of the fun pictures I took at the Johnson 4th of July parade when we were in Washington. There is no official sign-up or organization to the parade, if you want to join in you just show up and go for it, anything goes. It was a diverse group, from a family reunion to the Moscow Peace Band and the "Sasquatch for Pres" float. We also had the challenge of avoiding the spontaneous water fights that erupted all around us. The kids loved it all and N became an expert candy hoarder. I hope we can go again next year.

I'm not sure of the identity of this group but they all wore Hawaiian shirts and rode scooters and motorcycles.

These folks were "Sleepless in Johnson".

We had our very own episode of Deal or No Deal!
What luck for tired feet! After the parade we hitched a ride back to our car on my mom's neighbor's golf cart. Isn't this a sweet picture?

No Way!! I've actually been in this parade before! = )
My grandpa's family was from Johnson so one year when all his kids and grandkids were in town we loaded up his '56 Buick and walked in the parade with signs bearing the names of his realatives. Funny!
Did you grow up in Johnson?

That is great! I grew up in Pullman but this was my first Johnson parade. We had such a blast, I would love to go again!
