Fourth of July

There are many things great about this country, one of them is freedom and Urbandale puts on a great parade on the 4th of July to celebrate our freedom!  We headed over there to watch the floats and marching bands and hopefully see a few fire trucks!
All decked out in red, white and blue waiting for the parade to start!
 Here comes the marching band with the drums and the horns!
 Mom is all smiles and Trigg keeps watch as the parade goes by...
 "Big Rig"  Trigg shouts and points with enthusiasm...
 Sure enough, the Army, Navy, maybe Marines (one of the branches of the armed forces)...
 brought in their awesome tanker truck!
 ...and the fire trucks!  Pumper truck, aerial ladder truck, paramedic truck...they were all there and these two guys were excited to see them!
 Our pup, Riley, was born on the 4th of July, so we celebrated her birthday with a fun cupcake doggy treat that Trigg picked out from a local dog bakery, Bone A-Patreat!  7 years old!
 At the end of the day, we headed over to Altoona to watch the fireworks!
We had a great day celebrating a few of the things that make this country great, Happy Birthday America!
