This year we drove up to Wamego, KS for their 4th of July festivities. Adam's 1SG lives there and invited several soldiers and their families to come watch the parade (the soldiers were asked to march in the parade). Afterwards we all stuck around to watch the fireworks. Wamego is known for having an amazing fireworks show and I must say they didn't disappoint. We didn't get home until after midnight but it was a great day.
Waiting for the parade to start I didn't notice Ava had dropped one of her flags until after I took this picture
Me and my sweet girl. It was soostinkin hot!
Andrew stood there patiently waving at the floats just hoping to get more candy
Here comes C Co 701st
Thankfully Adam was walking on the same side we were on
1SG's wife Angel was in the parade handing out goodies from the bank she works at.
Ava bonded with Becky during the fireworks. She is the wife of another Plt Sgt that Adam works with
Sparkler fun = lots of smoke
I love how this picture makes the firework look like a bunch of sideways hearts
Andrew and Hayden taking a little break from running around to watch the fireworks
Ava getting some daddy love. I was surprised she didn't seem to mind all of the loud pops and bangs from the fireworks. She didn't get upset one single time
