One of our favorite family traditions is the 4th of July. Justin and I decided a long time ago that we were going to stay close to home because of all the fun things to do up in the valley for the 4th. We started off once again this year by heading over to the Huntsville park for a pancake breakfast, carnival rides and games and the famous parade. There honestly is nothing better than a small town parade. Kids on their decorated bikes, 100 year old tractors, civil war ear cannons and muskets and lots of candy.
Then about dusk we took our boat out on Pineview to watch the fireworks from the lake. The kids always look forward to that and we have front row seats to the spectacular show!
