Independece Twirl

Who wants to celebrate the 4th of July in the Bay Area?  We are going to visit in-laws in LA.  This is Yelena’s outfit:

We will miss our town’s Independence Day parade, though, which was a bit of a tradition for us.  Yes, believe it or not we hold an Independence day parade here.  It usually features Code Pink, believe it or not.  First time we saw them at a parade, they were carrying giant posters of “peacemakers,” a category that apparently includes Rachel Corry.  We screamed “Yom chai Israel” at them.  This year Code Pink not doing the parade for some reason.  Maybe they figured that 4th of July is for Republicans and decided to drop the pretense.

We will be away all week, going to Disneyland, too.  I don’t plan on blogging, but I might get the shakes.

    LOL. I know what you mean. I’m frantically trying to make a few blog rounds before going to the local VFW to celebrate Independence Day 2011.

  3. That dress is so CUTE. Man, I sure get dress envy when I see girl clothes these days. Here I am, too old to wear it all, and no daughter to dress up!

    Hope you have a fantastic vacation. Good luck with the withdrawal symptoms, LOL
