Happy Independence Day from the Pharaons

I hope everyone had a great Independence Day!

On the 4th of July we love to go to the Chappell Hill Independence Day parade. Chappell Hill is a small town (population 300) about ten minutes east of Brenham on Highway 290 that's known primarily for its sausage and for the Bluebonnet and Scarecrow festivals it holds every year. But every year they close down their main street and have a the coolest little parade we've ever seen.

There's nothing fancier than the marching kazoo band, and you'll get to see a lot of sweet antique vehicles such as some '51 and '54 pickups, a '67 corvette. They had one of the new Dodge Challengers in the parade - and an orange one no less. Our state representative walks in the parade while her kids ride their bikes. They even rolled a huge combine down the middle of the town this year, which was really interesting in its scale.

But the best part is that we always see lots of people we know there. The Chappell Hill parade is another one of those little things we love about living in a small country town. We love it.
