On the 4th we grilled out some huge hamburgers at our condo then walked to the Village to ride the carosel, dance to the band, get some balloon animals made and watch the fireworks.
Quick story about this balloon man... no offense to anyone who has a balloon man in their family, but most people who want to stand on stilts and make balloon animals for hours probably aren't "normal". We knew this when we decided to wait in line for over an hour for Taelyn to get him to make Donut (her daschund). We get to the front and tell him what we want, and he says, "Oh, I love to eat donuts, but that would be weird because I would be eating your dog." Who says that to a 2 year old???!!! I'm sure Taelyn had lovely dreams of the balloon man eating her dog.
We finally made it to the beach on our last morning there for about oohhh 20 minutes until we realized the pool was much more convenient. But we are glad we went.
