In honor of our 11 1/2 car ride to Ohio last night, I thought it only fitting to flashback to our last 4th of July here in the good ole Cbus!
Every year in Columbus, the Friday before the 4th is the annual Red, White and Boom festivities. Since my condo was across the street from the action, my friends and I would often gather for the day in Goodale Park. Eat. Play some Bocce or Cornhole. Drink. Eat some more. Just some All American good times complete with a fireworks finale!! Then every year on the 4th, one of the oddest parades you'll ever see would take place right outside our window. The Doo-dah parade! It's an "unreal" parade where the slogan reads "Celebrate Liberty & Lunacy, 'Cause you can!" And the only rule in the books is no nudity. Everything else is fair game! It really is something, can't wait to take Jamie for his 1st this year!
