As usual, we rode in the Brighton Parade. My favorite part was singing “Yankee Doodle” at the top of our lungs over and over. We had so much fun being silly and crazy. Instead of throwing candy, we received it from on-lookers, which made us laugh and laugh. It was a great way to celebrate our country and Grandpa Arlo, who fought to protect it.
