Saturday, July 14
Every Fourth of July our city puts on a big festival by the main river called *Splash*.
They always have blow up things to climb all around on and in for the kids for free and other booths too.
This year the day was SUPER HOT! We brought reinforcement of juice boxes for the heat and headed out.

Our Harbor also has two Tall Ships who dock locally and are owned by the Historical Seaport. One is called The Lady Washington and was actually in the movie *Pirates of the Caribbean*. That ship is the one farthest from us in the photo above. The other Tall Ship is the Hawaiian Chieftain. The Seaport just bought her this past year. These two ships were staging a mock battle for the festival in this photo with cannon blasts.
The kids had a great time on this toy with the huge Octopus. Just thought I would share some of the fun stuff we got to do locally for the Fourth even though it is quite a bit past the fourth now. ~smile~
Sometime in the next few days I will share pictures of the Vintage Strawberry Shortcake aprons for little girls I made for the Art Walk my two olders girls and I will be in on the 21st.
