Independence Day

We skipped the fireworks again this year, but enjoyed our small town parade.

And celebrated the return of the soap box car derby.  Much fun was had by all.

Well, almost all I guess.

While we were waiting for the parade to start, Porter asked me why everyone was waving American flags.  I laughed and told him, because, silly, it's the Fourth of July.  I received a blank stare in return.  You know, Independence Day.  More blank stare.  Sigh.  Another parenting FAIL.  Because all this holiday is about is gunpowder, fire trucks and car races.  Right?

Land and Sea

Our garden and the ocean have started to provide for us this year.  And it is delicious.

The wildlife has been giving me a hard time though.  And I haven't exactly come up with the solution.  I don't think the blue jays are scared of my plastic snakes.  The deer either.
