My friend Jen from work lives in St. Francis - right on the parade route! Since we all know parades are fun, we enjoyed the parade right from her front yard. She put out quite the spread of food and drinks and fun was had by all. It was a perfect Summer day too, so that really made the day great! We also watched Adam's cousin's son for the day/night, so that's the little boy in the pictures with Ally.
Ally was not sure what to do when people were throwing candy at her from the floats, but she sure did have fun after she watched the other kids go snatch it up. It didn't take her long to catch on. Since Jen lives right at the beginning of the parade route, we got the best stuff: candy, freezies, and even a bucket of sidewalk chalk! What kid doesn't need more sidewalk chalk? Of course there were some politicians out shaking hands and schmoozing too.
Here are a few pics from the occasion.
