Parade Fun

Our weekend has been nice. Alan and I went on a date last night, which was wonderful. Thank you, to Lauryn and Aaron for watching Jadyn for us! Having 3 hours of alone time and uninterrupted conversation was very nice.

Today, I did some errands and then this evening we went to a band festival in a small town about 45 minutes away. It was really good and so enjoyable to see 15 marching bands.

We did not take the camera along today, but I do want to share the photos we took at a parade recently. This parade probably tops the list of parades we've been to. It was a really great small town parade, and had so much variety. We loved it.
The theme of this parade was Back To The 1960's. Check out this sampling of photos. Oh yes, and please check out the band photos of our son. He is the whole reason we go to these parades after all. ☺

What do you think of these painted horses?

Kaitlyn and Jadyn, enjoying the parade.

Bryan is 3rd from the left in both of these photos.

We thought these girls' outfits were so cool!

Too cute.

sounds wonderful that you went on a date. I love doing that and having time alone with Bill!

Love your parade pictures. We don't have enough parades in Canada! Well we have have parades but nothing like you do in America!

Are those poor horses painted?

Yes, the horses were painted. I'd never seen anything like it before. I have to assume it was a totally safe paint, kind of like what one would use for face painting on a child.
Imagine scrubbing those horses down afterward! Probably not as fun as painting them. :)

Reminds me of one homecoming at my high school... each grade was assigned a decade and my sophomore class got the sixties. Thanks for the walk down memory lane! And glad y'all had a nice date night!

Love the parade picks!
Looks like a lot of fun.
The last time my husband and I went out on a "date" was ...umm... 6 years ago. LOL
And of course all we did was talk about the kids.

Okay, gotta love the groovy horses! Small town parades are too fun!

Hey, have you talked to Amy Hood lately? She is in Ethopia this week getting her newest daughter.
