4th of July!
I got to really enjoy the fireworks yesterday evening from the beach and today we went to see the Manistee 73rd Forest Festival parade. At the parade we received many Toostie rolls (both chocolate and cherry, vanilla, and orange flavored) , jaw breakers, jolly ranchers, peppermints, as well as colored bead necklaces, a stuffed animal froggie, water bottles, and Smokey the Bear pins. Whenever a new part of the parade would round the corner, I would gasp with awe! I especially like the marching bands and the huge red fire trucks.
