Our Fourth of July – The Parade

Every year, our town hosts a Fourth of July parade.

Last year, I was too ill to go to the parade.  This year I decided the boys, Hubby, and I should watch it even though we had the chance to walk in the parade.

Before the parade begins, there is a fly over.  This year we had two different fly overs which was cool.

The Wee One has freckles normally.  They are even more pronounced because of being in the sun last week.

If you haven’t heard about the Honor Flight, click on this link to find out more information.  I live in the town next to where the Honor Flight was started.

The owner of Foy’s was driving the Ghost buster’s car.

Ohio State University is HUGE around here.  We had the guy who dresses up for all of the games in the parade, a guy who looked like Jim Tressel, and a guy yelling “O-H” up and down the street.  I didn’t take a photo of the Jim Tressel look-a-like.

The Wee One was all about getting the candy.

The librarian who was driving the Bookmobile noticed the Imaginative One was reading a book while watching the parade.

One of the floats had a random grill on the back of it.

The Wee One saw candy caddy corner from us that had not been picked up.  When there was a lull in the parade, he made sure it was safe to cross.  Then he picked up the candy and waited there until it was safe to cross back over to where we were sitting.  I was so proud that he was thinking through his actions.  The candy was shared with his brother and cousin.

One of the photos in this collage is the street cleaner.  We knew at that point that the parade was over with so we packed up and walked the three blocks back to where we parked.

Here are some videos from the parade:

I hope you had a great Fourth of July!

I will share the photos of the fireworks next Monday.

Have a magical day,
Traci
