... god save the.... country?

In honor of our country's birthday, we....

...made ourselves some crowns:

What better way to celebrate what was, in essence the wholesale rejection of the British Monarchy and all it represents? Kind of like when kids turn their backs on their parents' lifestyles, values and dreams.....

And then we walked in the largest 4th of July parade in all of West Seattle (rumored):

Truth in advertising - this photo actually depicts a pre-enactment that took place on 3 July, during our walk to the library, which inexplicably was open on a Sunday! Imagine our shock and joy. Imagine our loud discussions over whether to borrow a DVD of Horton Hears a Who (my choice) and "the printheth movie!!!" (L's choice). And guess which one we came home with?
