After celebrating Canada, we decided it was only fair to celebrate America as well. We relaxed with my parents for a few days and on the 4th we celebrated with a trip to the park and a run around the lake. We played with their dog and enjoyed hot dogs and corn on the cob. So American! We drove to a small border town for the best firework show ever. Sora loved it. It was almost worth the traffic on the way home and the 11:30 bedtime to see Sora's adorable reactions to the show.
Sora and I stopeed at a famous waterfall on the way home for a picnic lunch. It is a few minutes off the freeway, so we rarely go there. It was beautiful!
