Happy Fourth Of July!

We had a busy day, starting with the 5k CAT Walk. It was a fundraiser for cancer awareness and treatment. Our second time participating, and we all had fun. Xander rode on my back, and Isaac kicked back in the jogger.

A little breakfast before the walk started. Everyone got white tee shirts, but the cancer survivors wore yellow. It was sad to see all the children participating, with yellow shirts. I mean great that they are survivors, but sad to think of what they, and their families, have gone through.

I walk in memory of my Grandpa Patrick, who died of cancer a few years ago, and my Grandma Mildred who died of cancer before I was born.

The kids got to play in a huge, bouncing dinosaur.

Then we went to watch the local parade. I was quite impressed with a new gay pride entry, advertising a support system for gay youth and young adults. Quite progressive for our little town!

Xander enjoyed a snow cone, which he soon after squeezed out of the cup and onto the ground.
