CANON BEACH :: a 4th of July tradition

Have you been to Canon Beach?

It is one of my favorite beach towns {in Oregon}!  The shops, the food, the houses, the ocean, I love everything about it!

Three years ago, a friend told us that the entire city celebrates the 4th of July.  That they have a darling parade and great fireworks.  She was so right!


It has now become a tradition.....starting with breakfast at the Canon Beach Bakery....


Cheering on the participants in the parade.....


Packing a picnic for the beach.....


The past two years, we also did a lot of shopping.  Funny thing; a 2 year old and 2 month old aren't really into shopping....


So, this year we didn't check out any of the darling little shops, looks like we will just have to make another trip later this month ;-)


Hope you and your family had a lovely 4th....we are so very blessed to live in a free country!!
