Independence Day

Such a strange Independence Day this year, falling smack dab in the middle of a work week, and in the middle of a long and brutal heat wave. It reached 101 degrees on our thermometer at home that day. But we still had to take in the Edina parade, despite the heat. It just wouldn't be the 4th of July without a parade!
Lindsey was happy to be there, despite the heat.
Marissa...not so much.

The parade begins with the presentation of the American flag.
Honoring our veterans.

The bad guy's right next to you! Turn around, Superman!!

Keith Ellison, our representative. Must be an election year.
To celebrate the melting pot that is America, we had sushi for dinner. Actually, it was to honor the melting that was going on in Minnesota. It was too dang hot to cook, too hot to stand next to a grill, and who wanted to eat hot food anyways? So sushi from Lund's it was.
