While we had a blast walking in the parade last year with Julie's soccer team, we were rather excited that this year we got to just sit, watch and wave. Of course it wouldn't have been half as much fun if we didn't have friends to sit with!
We sat with Christina, Gion, Heidi and Shaw (and kids) and Auntie Audrey, Lauren and Memere. It was a fun bunch. Everett is such a ham.....Sadie and Remi were less than amused...or more likely, didn't even notice.
Mom and I hamming it up ourselves....
My handsome boy waiting for the parade to start.
Oooooh, Sadie loves her cousin so much! She just can't wait to see her an squeeze her!
Andy and Memere!
For the first half of the parade, Lauren and Sadie snuggled with Audrey. Such sweeites.
Julie and Sadie loved dancing to the marching band....anything Julie does, Sadie loves doing too.
After the parade, it was time to find the Elk's train! This was Sadie's first time going on it! I think it was a hit!
Of course any sort of train is a hit for Andy. Our happy man.
And Julie, being a goofball, as usual. This will most likely be her last ride in the train. She is about to pass the "Too tall to ride this ride" line. I don't think it will bother her too much. I think Andy will be devastated, since he is not that far behind her.
And one last one with all three kiddos. It was a fun day at a great home town celebration. Right after this, we got to see a helicopter take off. It was breathtaking and the kids are still talking about it. What a great day!
