Tom and I attend a potluck brunch in Normandy Park, on the parade route, where we visit with friends prior to the parade.
Meanwhile, the kids are busy getting set up to be in the parade. Gus the Bus is a fun feature in the Normandy Park Community Parade.
The parade is made up mostly of vintage vehicles, so Gus fits right in.
After a quiet afternoon at home, we pack up our food contributions, and head for Jan's place on Henderson Bay, across the Narrows Bridge, on the Kitsap Peninsula.
Cherry pie for the 4th of July.
The kids paddle about in the bay.
We eat, too much, and wait for the big show to begin.
Jill and the kids always bring a bang up bunch of fireworks of their own.
Then from the barge in the bay, the big show erupts.
