Playing in Cody on the 4th of July

On the 4th of July, we went to see the parade.  It was the first time we've been to the 4th of July parade in Cody.  It was a fun parade, full of horses (including John Winter and a team of mules).

Afterward, we got some food at the Cody city park.  Kate and Liam shared one of kiddos' big corn dogs... at the same time.  We connected with some of Dani's friends (apparently the 4th is the time to come back to town!).

Ashley and James and their family came over for the 4th of July barbecue.  It was great seeing them and their kids and catching up.

We went to see the fireworks.  We followed Vicki to the 'perfect place,' which was in the very lighted parking lot of the correctional facility.  There was a concrete factory between us and the fireworks, but we were able to see all of the high fireworks.  The fireworks show seemed to end suddenly, and we found out that the grand finale was destroyed because of the heavy rain that was received earlier that evening!
