At the beginning of summer I made a list of things to do to make this a fun family summer for us. We checked a few items off, but I told Erik we'd have to kick it up a little (my exact words were "go balls out") to make sure we made the most of our short season.
The Velva parade was a highlight for B. After scoring a bag of mini donuts,we sat down to enjoy the festivities with the Anhorns.
Barrett totally "got it" this year. She skittered out into the street to get candy and dutifully put it in her little bag. Of course a piece or two popped in her mouth! I loved watching her jump up and down with a huge grin on her face "clap for this one!" she'd demand! The governor was there, (we even clapped for him,) and old men in tractors, and little girls on horses. They went around twice just to make sure you got a good look, it was everything a small town parade should be!
