We traveled up to Ely, MN for the 4th again this year! The weather was PERFECT, and the boys had tons of fun. We have hundreds of pictures of our time there. Here are a few from the 4th of July parade. Highlights were the lawn chair drill team (of course), the saw dust dig (Dane found FIVE quarters), cotton candy, anyone playing the drums and all the rescue vehicles (Erik loves fire trucks right now). The parade started at 1, so the boys were pretty tired by the end. There are some pretty sleepy eyes in some of these pictures!!
