This weeks Country Kids had to be about the 4th of July!
The morning started with a parade of decorated bikes, trikes, scooters, strollers, trailers… In fact anything with wheels :) Kids (and parents) had got out the red, white and blue streamers, tinsel, ribbon and tassels.
We made sure that we got seats, in the shade, nice and early for stunt bike display. The boys and hubby were looking forward to this! The 7yo managed to volunteer during it – taking part in a demonstration. The wee girl kept trying to join in too!
The wee girl started to get a bit tetchy, so I took her for a walk, leaving the boys (all three of them…) watching the show. I finished a lap of the park just in time to find that it was hubby’s turn to volunteer (can’t leave him alone for a minute!).
We had a lovely morning – I really enjoy going to these small, enthusiastically happy local events. This is the smallest place I’ve lived, I’m used to being in a city, and I’ve been surprised by how much I love the feeling of a smaller community. That coupled with a much greater emphasis on events being outdoors (and the weather cooperating!) is making for a very different lifestyle – one that we are all enjoying very much.
I am linking up with the wonderful Coombe Mill’s Country Kids again this week. I love this linky! Click on the badge to see what everyone else has been up to!
