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? 


  1. Everyone is so cute. I love seeing Porter in that little car. Looks like he's having fun.

  2. Next year I'd be happy to send Porter a pocket Constitution. I suppose everyone of reading age should have their own copy.
