July 4th Celebrations

We had a great time on July 4th in our small town.
First off, I have to say I'm very proud of our little Sonora... American flags line the street of every major 'American' holiday (Vets Day, Labor Day, etc.)-
-it is very cool.
We met some friends up in Twain Harte and watched their annual parade and then the kiddos had a blast on the water slides. One cool thing they do up there is hand out little flags to all the parade watchers. Makes it super festive and fun for the kids to wave them as the parade passes by.
Then, in the evening, we met up again with some of the same friends to have a little picnic dessert, evening playtime at the park, and firework time.  Calavaras County allows fireworks (unlike our Tuolumne Co.), so we went over the river to Murphy's and the kids loved seeing the little fireworks up close. 
Next year, we'll be bringing our own! =)
