July 4

On the way to town for the 4th of July parade and festivities, several of us went geocached. And what is geocaching you ask? Well, I didn't know either. Basically, it's a current day, world wide scavenger hunt. From the http://www.geocaching.com/ website you can put in the closet zip code to where you are and it will give you a listing of geocache sites. You then print out this information and try to find the geocache. Once found, you sign the log book and can then take something if you leave something. Below was the first find of the day. We found 2 that morning.



But then it was time to get to town for the parade. Here are just of few of the highlights from the day.




Waiting for the Parade to start.




And yes those are real chickens, pooping on the table. It is chicken poop bingo.




One of our group entered their dog in the Pet Parade.

But the best of the day was the firefighters water fight.


Ending the day was the fireworks. They were a little slow getting started, but then it turned out to be one of the best ever.
