we ♥ parades

finally...one of the posts i've been promising forEVER...the parade post

the first pic is from the curwensville parade weeks ago...i know i know, i seriously slacked on posting this...
this is MY fav part of each parade...all of the deere...and every SINGLE time i say to joe "someday i'll get dads painted and we'll be in the deere parade"...

the rest of the pics are from the clearfield fair parade...
you can see joey in the middle of the pic carrying a bass drum...with his little beret on...
i have to admit, for some reason he looked so grown up to me in this parade...and i got a little misty eyed...but i had to keep it together, jade was beside me...as she always says "don't turn on the water works mama"...

oh the shriners...something i will never understand...i apprecaite EVERYthing they do, seriously, but i will never understand why they give elderly men with alzheimer’s 3 wheelers to ride through a crowd {nothing against elderly men, alzheimer's or 3 wheelers, just don't think they should be combined}...

this is always my FAV shriner float...the guy in the front always seems so happy to be doing his big dance and singing...

out for now
