4th of July - Bothell, Washington

We arrived in Bothell, just 8 miles east of Seattle on the 3rd and are staying at Lake Pleasant RV Park.  The sun finally came out on the 4th and it was a glorious day.  We went to the Bothell Children's parade , followed by the Bothell Grand parade.  Two and a half hours of parade.  We had lunch and rested for a couple of hours and then drove over to nearby Evergreen Speedway at the Washington State Fairgrounds in Monroe.  Unique racing at its best.  We saw 4-cylinder bombers, hobby stocks, sportsman, mini stock figure 8, supercharged extreme V-8 winged figure 8 racing, cars pulling a boat race (which ends up with all of the boats destroyed) a truck demolition derby, followed by a car demolition derby.  If that wasn't enough, Mr. Dizzy was there to drive a bus up a ramp, flip it over and land on a bed of junk cars and a guy driving a car on two wheels.  If that wasn't enough, the evening ended with what Debbie said was, "the best fireworks display ever."   Wow, it sure was a full and great 4th of July.
