We started our Independence Day celebration with our annual 3rd of July trip to Hawaiian Villages to see our good friends the Snodgrass Family.  A good time was had by all.  The boys slept in until almost 8:00 this morning....even Ben.  Thank you for your friendship and hospitality and fun.

Today was the Murdock Parade.  Both the big boys participated in the parade itself.  Here is a picture of the band.  If you look very closely in the very back left of this picture you will see John.  

He was not thrilled to get a base drum, but at least I did catch one picture where he was sort of smiling.

We got to sit by some of our cousins.  Here is Lucy 

 And her sister Annie who is Ben's age.

 Ben enjoyed throwing candy in the bag.  But was not thrilled with having to hold hands. 

Noah had fun with his baseball buddies on the baseball float. 

Now we are back home in the cool for a nap.  If feels so good to be home for a change, I think we just might stay here.   Happy 4th Everyone.
