The 4th and 5th

On July 4th we went to the parade in Corvallis and the kids rode their bikes all around town.

Friday evening we went to Amy and Ryan's house for dinner and (legal) fireworks fun out in the street.

Setting the street on fire. Notice the guy in the red shirt with the propane torch. I was pretty impressed with the pyrotechnics, some of the "fountain" type fireworks were very explodey.

On the 5th, while Felice was suffering at the Saturday Market, I took the kids to the Philomath Classic Car Show.

These pictures make more sense if I remind that Max is obsessed with VW bugs because of the Herbie the Love Bug movies. Henry is begging to go look at the other cars.

Max fits right in the engine. Notice my well behaved child who kept his arms behind his back and did not touch any of the cars.

Listening to what the bug says.

Henry likes monster (or in this case just a semi jacked up pickup) trucks.

This was my favorite, a 2CV in mint condition.

Max explains the engine to Henry.

Max talks a bit with the Beetle.

A good way to spend a few hours with the boys.
