Taxation without representation? Important sure, but not the issue that really stuck in the craw of the colonists. Actually, I have it on good authority it was because King George III declared there would be absolutely NO kid parades.
It's only because we, as a collective people, rose up in revolt all those years ago and declared "You're not the boss of us!" that countless parents can now get up early on the 4th of July and walk patriotically though the streets next to their rolling children.
Today we celebrated our right to have kid parades, and had a lot of fun doing it too!
|Ready to ride.|
|Plenty of sun for the parade|
|It was a bit crowded at times|
|For my next trick, I will jump 20 barrels and a bus.|
Happy 4th of July US readers! So tell me how did you spend your holiday? Did you partake in any parades, or fireworks?
