A long weekend reprised

By reeset / On / In Family

I hope everyone had a nice 4th of July weekend.  We had a good one.  Our little town of Independence, OR goes all out on the 4th.  They have two fireworks celebrations (one for the locals, one for everyone else) – they have a mini-marathon, a large parade and a carnival that goes on for 4 days.  So we had ample opportunities to get outside and enjoy the sunshine (90+ degree days), the fair food and the fireworks. 

The last day of the carnival, my wife and I took our boys down to the carnival for a day of unlimited rides.  They were kiddie rides, and Kenny and Nathan loved different types of rides.  Kenny loved the long slide and Nathan loved the kids roller coaster.  Here’s a few pictures from our day.
