Obligatory 4th of July Photo Post

I just adore the Fourth - not only for the usual reasons like love of country and such, but also because it's a day when we get decked out like we wouldn't any other day. Kind of like Halloween without the slutty pumpkins.

(No offense to pumpkins, of course - who doesn't like a promiscuous gourd? - and, uh-oh . . . where was I going with this again?)

Oh, right - Independence Day. The day the people of my Austin 'hood pledge our allegiance and put on a parade, pretending it isn't far too hot to leave our houses for any reason whatsoever, let alone while festooned in our red, white, and blue finest:


The preppy patriot

This isn't the Pretty Pug - he doesn't do temperatures above 80 degrees - but rather the neighborhood "celebrity Pug", as we were informed. 

Cruising with his best girl - thanks for joining us, Z!

Touring the fire truck that led the parade a.k.a. boy heaven

Wondering why I bothered to shower & do my 'do pre-parade. Patriotism does not equal good hair, friends.

Now go hug a member of our armed forces or, absent that, a friendly pumpkin. Merry Independence Day.

OMG I'd pin that first photo of Mr. P. as CLASSIC holiday but I feel like people's kids aren't public property, so I won't. But still. How cute and perfect is he?

Not that a pug in a straw hat outshines MP, but seriously that is cute.

I'm jealous of your neighborhood family fun. Ours (which we realized a little too late) is an informal gathering at the pool with our 40 loud teenage kid residents.

Did not know you had a pug!! We just got one. How long have you had yours?? Do you have any good general tips? What do you do when you need to leave him (indoors) while you're out of the house for a period of time?

Love the pictures! Our town did basically nothing for the Fourth. Lamesville. And you look great lady. Love that dress!
