We may have celebrated the single most boring 4th of July in my entire life this year. In years past, we have gone camping, or swimming, or had family barbecues. Maybe it’s because the holiday was on a Wednesday, but we had nothing planned. Nothing at all.
I take that back. We had one thing planned. Her Royal Highness (offspring #3) wanted to march in the parade with the karate school. We have never been around to do this, and I thought it sounded like a fun way to start the day. I promptly signed up all three kids to march.
And then I learned that the parade begins at 6:00 pm. I ask you, who holds a parade at 6:00 pm?
