A Day At The Parade

A local town in our area had their annual fair and parade this last weekend. We enjoyed this fair and enjoyed visiting the different food vendors and the handcrafted items offered for sale by local artists in the area. Today would be different, however, as this is the first time we were going over on parade day. Saturday morning found Cara, daddy, mommy, grandpa, and myself getting up early in the morning to be ready to head over to watch all of the excitement.

With a beautiful cloudless blue sky and cooler weather we scouted out and found what we thought would be the best place to see the parade. The parade had veterans from the different services, bands, floats, politicians, balloons, old cars, classic cars, tractors, bands, scouts, policemen, and firemen. Emily and I helped Cara to collect a small batch of candy that was tossed from the floats as they went by. Cara, of course, thought this was great.

After the parade we spent some time enjoying eating curly fries, strawberry shortcake, carmel corn, and hot dogs. With full tummies we walked around and saw some of the crafts and we treated Cara to a ride in an Amish buggy.

After a busy morning we headed back to our house for a nap, more playtime, and a big surprise! I will post about the surprise next.

What a fun day. So Cara really does have parents, huh? :)

Kidding. I just always see her pictured with grandma and grandpa. It's easy to tell you really love her.
