A Piedmont 4th of July

This 4th of July we flew down to California to visit family in Piedmont.  It has always been one of my favorite places to visit because I love spending time with my Aunt Carolee and all the California family members.  When I was growing up we went down to Piedmont for the 4th of July and I was in the parade and I thought it would be a great rite of passage for Sienna to do the same.  Although, she didn't partake in the parade she REALLY enjoyed watching it!  It was the perfect mix of everything and everyone is dressed in their RED, WHITE and BLUE.

My Uncle John is a part of the Horseless Carriage Club and each 4th they always come and show off their cars in the parade.  It is so fun and the weather is always perfect!  After the parade my Aunt and Uncle host their annual 4th of July party and probably 100-200 people come thru throughout the day.  They truly know how to throw a seamless party! 

After the party at my Aunt and Uncle's house we carried the party to my cousins block party.  They shut down the whole block and have jumpy houses, water balloon fights, sparklers, potluck dinner, my cousins Wes's winning homebrew, fireworks and an outdoor movie when the sun goes down!  It was a perfect end to the 4th of July and to top it off their block won the Best Float in the parade!!!!

It was such a great trip and Sienna loved playing with her cousins.  Matt is her new best friend and she always asks when she will see all the boys again.  It won't be long...we will be down for some trick or treating in October!

fun at Fairyland
