We live in the Eastmoreland neighborhood of Southeast Portland, and every year there is a neighborhood parade of epic proportions.
This is the first year that Sam walked in the parade, and he was wide eyed with his hand glued to my hand the entire time. It was a whole lotta stimulus going on, and he handled it beautifully – observing and enjoying. And Zoë rode her scooter like and old pro doing jumps and wheelies along the route.
Here is a bit of what the 4th of July looks like in our little world. We hope you’ve had a fun and safe holiday!
love, The McDowners
