Fourth of July

We spent the Fourth of July in Harbor Springs with my grandma and my mom's cousin Wendy. The weather was gorgeous and we really had a great time. It was Brayden's first time seeing the wonderful, beautiful area where my mom's family is from.

The day of the Fourth started out with the annual Art Fair in downtown Harbor Springs. We saw some very beautiful pieces, but nothing that had to come home with us.

The parade in Harbor Springs is a very grand event. With all the hub-bub surrounding it, you would have thought that we were in front of Macy's on Thanksgiving Day.

This is us waiting for the parade to start. As you can see, there were tons of people in town. Some actually put their chairs out on the curb the night before, saving their spots. The parade was over an hour long, so by the time it was done, we were all burnt and we had one tired little boy. He actually fell asleep on the walk back to the car.

The fireworks that night were probably some of the most beautiful that we have every seen. They shoot them off over the bay, so the reflection off the water just adds to the appeal.

We had a great family trip and hope to be able to spend lots of summer time in the Great North.
