God Bless America!

July 4th-8899

We celebrated our nation's birthday with a parade, a trip to the park, and then barbecued ribs with our next-door neighbors. It doesn't get any more American than that. Grandma Carns helped us get into the holiday spirit with patriotic gifts (notice Francis's hat and purse in the pictures).

At the parade, we saw the greatest entry of any parade since the dawn of parading: this guy. He stood in the back of his cabriolet, guitar in hand and amp plugged in, thrashing the Oak Park parade all the way up Ridgeland Ave.

A new goal for the Gulde famly is to be in the parade next year. Who wouldn't be inspired by the dude in the Rabbit? Any ideas on what our float should be?

I think you could be the "all american family" just load up your mini van, dvd a-playing, bedecked with balloons. ;-)

I second Kristen, but add a little shoe polish to the windows and some face paint.

DVD? we don't have those silly screens in our minivan. Although, THAT would be totally American. I do have a 6 CD changer. What should I put in there?

Redneck american music: Alabama's CHEAP SEATS and other stuff that I can't think of right now. ;-)
