Red, White and Blue Recap








Well, I've re-entered into the world again. Still not feeling 100 percent, but there's so much to do and too little time to be sick. Given my current state, I neglected to post photos from our 4th of July celebration. As I mentioned previously, our neighborhood holds a bike parade for the kids. Everyone dons their red, white and blue, decorates their bikes and then we march around the neighborhood, led by a police cruiser and followed by a fire engine. The kids get a real kick out of it and so do the adults. People even dress up their dogs for the occasion. Then, after the parade, everyone gathers in the common area for popcicles. Lots of fun.

Please excuse Little Guy in some of these pics. He decided to pout early on, but quickly came out of his funk once the parade was underway and treats were offered.

So, dear readers, what's on the agenda for your weekend? My weekend will be full of packing and more packing. My aunt sent me the best quote the other day, and it certainly rings true: "War is hell and moving isn't so great either." Happy Friday, everyone!

What wonderfully festive pictures!! It's good to hear your on the mend-especially when there's so much to enjoy right now. It reminded me to ask how your mother is doing. I hope she's doing well!

This past weekend we went to Kitchenware Row and back into Ginza for an emergency iPad repair (poor Husband was in a tizzy over the broken antenna). I hope you enjoyed a restful weekend with your family.
