Everybody Loves a Parade
The community where Adorable Hubbies parents live has it's town summer celebration the second weekend in June. We always attend since we lived in this town for years and because Grandma and Grandpa Take our kiddos on Friday night and keep them for a big ol' cousins sleepover then ask us to come watch the parade and join in a big BBQ. It's a fun tradition! And, really you can't call your summer complete with out at least one hometown parade.
So, just in case you missed out on the floats that make you go ahh! the entries that make you go Huh! And don't forget all that salt water taffy that the kiddies get to pick up off the street. Makes perfect sense to spend their whole lives convincing them not to eat stuff off the ground then take them to a parade and encourage them to fight for it. Any who, I took a few pictures so nobody misses out on the fun.
Pretty girls and great floats! What parades are all about!
The Three Musketeers waiting patiently for the next round of salt water taffy to be thrown. They pride themselves on being faster than the three and under crowd. That's #3 in the 'wife beater' and #4 in the backwards hat. Here's hoping "Gang Banger" is a phase!
No parade is complete without Ronnie on a golf cart.
Do you see what these flag twirlers are twirling. Pastel colored riffles? Apparently they haven't heard of Columbine.
Shh! A team of Draft horses and a butt suitable for Wrangler's is my secret fantasy!
So, if Smurf hair is your thing, call now! Bet they're booked through September.
Get your princess head gear here!
I know kiddies lets be in a parade today???? What the over organized mother does with the kids on parade day! Notice there is no advertising, no clue what entry 54 was promoting! But hey, one can never pick up enough free candy.
A giant onion! Nice!
Yo, Bicycle Dude! We're over here!
Ummmm! A UPS truck! Wow! Cause ya just can't see enough of those Big Brown Trucks on a normal day. I like that they added some colorful pictures to the side of the truck, you know, to add interest!
The last entry in the parade...do ya think it's a hint????
The BBQ! We're not the most photogenic family ever.
Ahh, That's better! Our few little girls!
Hooray, your summer is complete! Just send me your address and I'll send you some salt water taffy!
