Bella playing in the sand
before the fireworks!
Happy 4th of July and Happy Birthday Daddy
We had such a great day! John turned the big 37! We celebrated with Chocolate Wipeout cake! YUMMY!!!!! The morning started with some surfing for John and then off to the parade we went! We are lucky enough to have some friends who live close, so we were able to park in front of their garage and walk over...200,000 people were downtown! WOW! Bella was dancing in the street and Jack did a good job of not getting too overwhelmed by everything! We left a little early so we wouldn't get hit with all of the crowds of people leaving and went over to have lunch. Our plan was to go over to our friend's house for BBQ and swimming, but we decided that we would go buy a huge waterslide for the kids and BBQ at home...off to find the Banzai Sidewinder Falls we went...do you know that this thing is SOLD OUT everywhere and is being sold on ebay for unbelievable prices...we settled for steaks and sprinklers instead...then off we went back downtown to the beach for the big fireworks show off the pier. The kids all loved it this year and were OUT the second we hit the car after all of the excitement of the day! It was a nice little day! :-)
