fun-packed day beginning with our local small-town parade:
Immediately after the parade we headed to the rubber ducky race (we purchased three ducks - the winners get $1,000 or $500). The 1,000 or so ducks were dropped from this bridge:
Yeah-GO DUCKY GO!
We headed down there for the next event of the afternoon--
When you live on a Great Lake most activities relate to water. DH is heading for that bridge where the rubber duckies raced to (we did not win). The 3:00 p.m. event is cardboard boat races...yes, cardboard! I was amazed at how creative some of these boats were:
The majority of the boats made it across the river without sinking which surprised everyone.
We all thought they would sink right away...especially the big one on the right with 14 people in it.
This was the first year for the cardboard boat races and I think it was a huge success.
We are now home taking a short break before cooking a burger on the grill and then heading out to see the fireworks tonight. We have a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to go out on Lake Huron on this vessel to watch the fireworks! Yeah, pinch me--I can't even believe it!
I can hardly wait to board the boat at 8:30 p.m!
