Rob was fun and brought some balls to kick and play catch with and he also brought a tennis ball that he attached to a rope that he uses at Kung Fu. They had fun with that while we waited for the parade to start.
It was a tight squeeze, but we got the trampoline to fit in the van with all of us inside. :)
For breakfast we had red, white and blue pancakes. With red white and blue fruit, well, whipped cream was the white.
They were really yummy.
Then after morning jobs were done the kids went straight out to the trampoline. They jump all day...everyday. It's awesome. They love it so much. Rob was worried about his weight on the tramp, so he laid down to spread it out.
Cute kids ready for the parade.
Playing. While I sat. In a comfy chair. :)
Riley kept me company while we waited. This girl is always eating something. ha ha
So the game works like this. Someone swings the ball around and around and the person in front of the line tries to run through without getting hit by the ball. Some other kid joined in the fun. He kept getting hit by the ball. ha ha.
Zac was the king of ducking out of the way so he didn't get hit.
Sitting in the shade was so nice...in fact, I barely ventured out into the sun at all.
Sadie brought her spirograph. These two can be good friends sometimes...
Playing catch to pass the time.
And I love Zac's catching face. ha ha
They passed out flags for everyone to hold and wave.
Riley and I were buddies. She would go back and forth between the shade and the parade. She's such a cutie.
And just to document how hot it was...Yes I know. This is nothing to you Arizona natives, but it isn't usually this hot here for such long stretches. But I will definitely take 102 over 118 any day!
