4th of July Parade in Arizona

This year's Fourth of July was spent in Springerville, Arizona. It's a little cowboy town close to the border of New Mexico. We went up there because a friend of the family was from there and they were going to be in the parade. So the whole clan went up and participated. Then unexpectedly Justin got to ride in a dune buggie and throw candy. So much fun for him.

Papa Moore driving the car with Justin in the back.

Menleigh and Laurel also got to ride in the parade in a different car then Justin.

Up close of Justin before the parade started.

Sariah still loves her Bjorn. Seriously, she loves it! I think if she was a big kid she wouldn't still love it as much but being only 18.5 pounds has it's benefits at 14 months.

Pop's enjoying the parade.

Our little miss walker.

Honey with some of the Moore's

I thought this float was funny.

Justin was all out of candy by the time he got to us and still had more then half the parade to go. He had fun though.

I thought this old firetruck looked really awesome. They actually had like 3 or 4 different types of trucks in the parade. Even though Springerville is a small town it's proud of it's fire and rescue department, they were all over the parade.

My great great great grandpa James Hale is part of the Historic Driving tour in Springerville. We went and found the marker while we were out driving around.


We drove a lot back and forth to Springerville so not much else happened on the big 4th of July. I am a huge fan of BBQ's and Fireworks on the 4th but it will have to wait till next year.
