Pre-4th of July

Last night we went to Loco for the pre-4th of July events. The volunteer fire department put on quite a show. They cooked hamburgers (supplied by our good friends from the Chuckwagon in Velma). Here is what the line looked like when we arrived at 7:30PM. They held a lawnmower race (Bubba was in charge and did an excellent job), which was viewable from the hamburger line. Jakie (lower left corner) won the race by a country mile after souping up his mower to run about 26 MPH (notice the rainbow). Of course no 4th of July celebration would be complete without a little rain. We had to break out the umbrellas including the princess umbrella and the clear pink little girl umbrella. All were adorable. Kids were playing everywhere with no fear of strangers. There was a pretty good C&W band set up on a flatbed trailer. We did a bit of dancing along with our friends J&S. The politicians were out shaking hands - I guess that is all part of the celebration. We managed to stay through the fireworks, which were wonderful (put on by our friend Tucker the Pyro). GBN1 clapped her hands and hollered, "Gorgeous!" GBN2 just said, "Wow!" It was good Loco fun.



Tonight we are going to The City for even more fun. Here is another photo of the T-shirt that Jesse's soldier sent her.

It sounds like a great event. Our town doesn't do any sort of celebration for the Fourth.
