We had a very low-key fourth. Holidays always make me wish we lived closer to family to get together. Lexi and Zara made our favorite patriotic dessert and we went to the local neighborhood parade. It was the first ever parade for the girls and they loved it. There were horses so Zara was happy. There was also a Frozen themed float (they threw ice) so Lexi was happy and everyone threw them lots of candy. Zara quickly learned, "If I wave and jump up and down, they throw more candy!" Of course they ate a few pieces and forgot all about it so really its the parents that really win (or lose if you consider the dental impact).
