4th of July

Ever since we moved here we have participated in the 4th of July Parade held in downtown Novato. They pull one of the Coast Guard boats behind a semi-truck and we get to ride on the boat waving at people. This is the second time I have been on the boat pregnant. Ironically I forgot to take an actual picture of the boat. Sorry. And this is going to be the last year that we get to ride in the parade since next year is our transfer year. It's been a fun ride.

Daddy in uniform.
This was the only sitting area on the deck, I eventually went into the pit with a lot of the younger kids, so I didn't get to wave as much this year.
Here's Tobie up in the front with some of his friends. He always loved this parade.
Emma and Miriam in the pit. They are actually watching this helicopter coming up behind us.
This part is always really cool. They have this helicopter fly over like 4 times, and they get really low so you can see them wave out the windows.
These poor guys volunteered to wear the hazmat uniforms and walk the whole distance of the parade. They are drenched in sweat by the end of the parade. Needless to say, Theo never volunteered to do this.
Captain Miriam!
Me and my prego belly. I am 33 weeks now! Our boat was the first in the parade so we got to walk around and enjoy the rest of it. They had awesome Kettle Popcorn that the guy gave us this huge $10 bag for $5 because Theo was in uniform. They are so awesome. That stuff was goooooood!
