This year we decided to go downtown a few hours before the parade started and walk around looking at all the shops. We stopped at the Edmonds Bakery to get some breakfast and we were shocked at all the cookie jars! So many cute ones!
I have a cookie jar that belonged to my grandparents. She's got to be at least 60 years old but I still use her! Do you have a special cookie jar?
While we waited for the parade to start, I walked around a little more. I really love the heart of our little town.
We were invited to a friends party this year. I'm always nervous in those situations, especially if I don't know the people really well. Ugh! But we had a good time. I think next year we'll let Beth stay at home. She really didn't know anyone and just hung out with me all day. She'd much rather be at home writing, singing or watching TV!
Beth is in the middle row, left of center and I'm behind her
Then on Sunday Sharaya and Allie came over for s'mores!
Thanks for the picture Sharaya!
I look forward to the 4th of July every year!
We really had a great day!
