Very Busy Days

Friday, my sis and I found all kinds of reasons to be outside.
We worked in the flower beds, we finished the laundry, we even washed the car again.

When the new neighbors came out to work in thier yard, we introduced ourselves.
We made plans to show them around town on Saturday.
Saturday morning, we took them to a farmers market. This one has the freshest fruits.

A little shopping for household items, We loved the store called
"Favorite Pasttimes". It is owned by Evy's friend Marian Ferguson.
We found all kinds of pretty things for our own cottage.

More shopping, the parade was about to start, so we went and wandered through the town.

The guys were pretty impressed by the John Deere club.
There were tractors from the early 1900's.
Only in a small town does the parade include tractors, fire trucks,
and the high school football team!
This one caught sissy's Eye!

It is Independence day after all.
You ARE supposed to thank those who dedicate thier lives to protecting our freedoms!
We met these girls at the pizza picnic. They are the children of the pastor of THE COMMONS.
We found a great seat to watch the parade! Now, if only they served chips and salsa out here!

It was really hot and we stood in the street watching the parade for hours! So of course we had to stop for a drink at "Three Peas In A Pod". (I am the designated driver).

After the parade, we relaxed until the sun went down. We were able to watch the fireworks from Evy's neighborhood. Many of her neighbors were lighting them off, and we did get a little worried because of all the bottle rockets landing near our houses. But everything survived!

Oh, and Gina and Evy, Couch In The Road!

How did I miss you girls? I ran into the Corbin girls, but didn't actually see you sisters! Bummer - my boys could have given you a ride on the youth football float!

This couldn't have been any funnier or more creative. I was wondering how long it would take to get a picture of the couch on here. LOL
