4th of July weekend

4th of July weekend, nothing to do so we went to the town next to us (they have a little parade). It's no Blanding, UT, or Provo, or Springville, but hey.  It's all we got.
Pat sat in the back and snapped pictures while I drove.
We got set up along the street.  People only sit on one side of the street since there's not that much to see, or that many people.
Daisy and Mama.

We told Sam that it was an American day, not an Italian one.

The parade was basically like one big advertisement for everyone's businesses with flying candy.  We threw away a bucketful of candy after the kids picked the 10 pieces they wanted most. 
The rest of the weekend was just spent fixing our front door.  It broke, and we had to buy a new one and a new frame, and our neighbor Warren came over to help.  Thank you!!!!!!  He is such a wonderful neighbor.  Everything went perfect while he was there.  Then all we had to do after he left was the spray insulation.  Note to self: Spray insulation expands 10x its size.  It was awful.  It even came out the newly installed lock.  Aarrgghh!!!  Now I'm trying to figure out how to get it off of tools, the tile, the sink, the lock, etc.

Of course it wouldn't be the 4th of July without flag cake! We also had fried chicken since our BBQ is pretty gross, coleslaw, and deviled eggs.  We were missing something, but I couldn't think what.  So we just left it at that.  Maybe chips?
