We decided to take a road trip to see the Hubby's parent in Ohio for the 4th of July. It's a pretty trip through Pennsylvania and Ohio is a great place to spend the 4th.
Our first stop when we get to Ohio is a local burger place that makes THE BEST burgers: Swensons.
Mmmmmm. People - I'm not kidding. THE BEST burgers. I get the hot fudge milk shake, Hubby gets the coffee shake and we get our cheeseburgers with the works. Heaven.
There are always a lot of fun community activities going on around the holidays in this area of Ohio. We went to a great concert with the Cleveland Symphony playing patriotic marches and songs and we hit the local 4th of July parade.
Watching the 4th of July parade required another food stop:
The fact that the parade started at 10 am did not stop us from getting some frozen custard. It was hot out after all, plus...frozen custard! Enough said.
Blackberry frozen custard the breakfast of champions! The Hubby said watching me eat this cone was like coming across a crime scene, but people, let me say again - it was hot out! And the cone was melting! And I don't think this is all that bad:
Harrumph. Let's move on to some pics of the parade shall we?
The parade route.
The local American Legion post.
Some patriotic cars from the parade.
I love a good parade and this was a great one. The 4th of July is one of my favorite holidays and this was a great place to celebrate it.
