Then we came home and got the children up and told them we were going to the parade. After the parade we went to Theisens to get dog food for Abby and some free popcorn of course. We were invited to my friend's home to celebrate the day, however the children decided they wanted a different day so we didn't go. So basically we layed around most of the day until around 4 when I thought I should start making some yummy food so we could have a nice dinner. Instead of a grill out, Scott wanted pizza and Redbox movies. So I got pizza and redbox movies.
After dinner we waited until it was almost dark and headed to Coralville to enjoy the fireworks, which ended up being weird because someone accidentally let off the finale first. Whoops.
Here are pictures to enjoy:
