Freedom at its Finest

The Salad was lucky to be able to have Daddy and Poppy around on the Fourth of July!  We started off with our local parade.  The only red shirts that the Salad have are the Thing 1, Thing 2 and Thing 3 shirts that Aunt Jo bought them 2 years ago.  Yes, they still fit.  Yes, we have small kids.  Geez. 
Anyway, the shirts got a lot of attention from the people on the floats and in the old fashioned cars riding in the parade.  They would scream out the windows, "Oh my gosh!  I love those shirts!   Hahahahaha!  Like Dr. Seuss!   Hahahahah!  'Cause there are 3 of them!"  They were kinda super stars.  Then the parade participant would throw fistfuls of candy at them.  We hauled home more candy on July 4th than we did on October 31st. 

Also of note, the Republicans marched a live elephant down a suburban street.  Come on, Democrats.  I bet a donkey is a lot easier to find round these parts than an elephant.  They outdid you, Democrats.  They really did. 

We jumped in the car and headed into Media, because R heard there was gonna be a giant water slide.  As soon as we arrived, there was an announcement that a race for 4 year olds was being held.  The Salad didn't hesitate.  M won.  That kid is fast as lightning.  Gotta get him interested in Track and Field, 'cause the boy can jump too.

After the slide, we headed home for a special Independence Day edition of Muffin Tin Monday.
And then we ate candy.  Lots of it.  It says to do so in the Declaration of Independence.

"We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights, that among these are life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness that comes from eating candy."
