independence day

We celebrated this holiday at a small parade on our little stretch of cottages on Hamlin Beach, Lake Ontario, Hamlin, NY.  A bit of American history, music, dance, and refreshments followed the parade, which has been an annual event for almost 20 years.

Thanks to a swan visit the next day (we think he/she was checking out the clump of leaves/seaweed on the beach), we've renamed the lake, Swan Lake!

I love the pics of your daughter, she is really cute. What a great initiative to have children get acquainted with history in a nice, attractive way.
