Independence Day Wrap-Up

Monday, July 8, 2013
Happy Monday!

I hope you enjoyed the holiday weekend as much as we did in the Sparrow family!  If you missed it, the details of our exciting July 4th can be found here.  

We continued the festivities on Saturday with a neighborhood parade and lake-side party.  For a bunch of Brits, the Sparrow family always goes big for the Fourth! 

The parade float is for grandchildren only- so this was our first year participating!  Our float theme was Lady Liberty- complete with a 3-foot inflatable statue- so the kids were all decked out in green crowns and togas.  It was adorable.  AND we won the prize for "Best Family Costumes."  I believe the prize was bragging rights. ;)

7 grandchildren on board and not a single tear- they did so well! 

Parked at the lake, ready for food and games! 

The only downside was holding a float-rope on the drive (run) uphill to the parade starting line.  I haven't run/jogged/speedwalked outside of a mall in at least 5 years (more like 10).  How I got that job, I have no idea! 

Sunday we were able to decompress, me in the garden and the husband watching the Wimbledon finals.  

Lu showed her UK pride (after an all-American weekend) and watched Murray win! 

Do you ever feel more exhausted after a holiday weekend than you did going into it??
