Happy 4th of July! Today the community center held a bike parade on the school playground, and I was in it! It was really far out! All day yesterday I was busy decorating my bike.
I used lotsa ribbon, tape and construction paper. Doesn't it look groovy? I worked really hard on it. I hope I win a prize or something.
So I hopped on my bike and rode down to the playground. I was so excited!
When I got there, I saw some of the other kids with their decked out bikes. Sunny, and Jason and Kim had their bikes, Stephanie decorated her scooter, and even Danny's little cousin Michael was there with his tricycle! We were all asked to get in a line behind Wendy and April, who were gonna lead the parade twirling their batons.
The rest of our friends were sitting in the bleachers, holding balloons, sparklers, and snacking on stuff from the concession stand.
There were all yelling and cheering as each of us went by. We all circled the playground 4 times.
"Yay April and Wendy!"
"Go little Michael!"
"Hooray for Stephanie!"
"Shine on, Sunny!"
"Yippee! Go Kim!"
"Go, Jason, go!"
(Jason tried to ride with no hands, and almost lost control of his bike! Luckily he grabbed the handlebars just in time!)
It was so much fun! After it was over, everyone got a medal! My mom took my picture with mine.
It looks a lot like the medal I got in summer camp last year for the talent show. I'm glad all the kids got a medal, 'cos all their bikes were outta site too. I was pretty hungry, so I got some food from the concession stand and hung out with my friends a while. I hope kids still ride their bikes and have parades in the future. It was a great way to spend the 4th of July. I gotta go now, future readers. My mom and I are going to Springfield Park to watch the fireworks!
Until next time,
