When the kids heard they could enter the boat parade this year, they decided to dress up as superheroes. We won 3rd place and no doubt, it had nothing to do with the boat and everything to do with these dancing cuties. As soon as we were awarded 3rd prize in the sweltering 100 degree heat, the boys pealed off their costumes and we paraded to home to take a dunk in the water and eat some hot dogs and watermelon.
When lunch was over, we all headed to the middle of the lake and spent the next 6 hours floating in the water and cascading off the boat. It was a great day with friends.
Later on the fourth, we headed to my brothers house for some food and good hospitality. We enjoyed the fireworks in Brooklyn from their front yards.

The day was a big hit and we were treated to a special behind the scenes exhibit for the Penguins. Rick arranged it secretively to give Jakob a surprise for his birthday. How exciting.
And the kids were treated to a camel ride. Lots O Fun.
