We took Ava to the Liberty Day Parade in downtown Boise this year. It was...lets just call it "lack-luster". There were no schools, no bands, no dance groups, nothing more than political cars and some military floats (which Ava clapped for so sweetly). There were a few firetrucks, but not much more. Ava made it through the entire parade though!! Then she took almost a 3 hour nap before waking up to play in her swimming pool. We wanted to take her to the firework show, but she was entirely too tired and was tucked into bed by 8:15 without a peep until morning.
