Now normally I try to avoid any parades and festivals here. There is just so much traffic that it just isn't worth the hassle, but today was different. I had to go. I needed to go. My oldest son, DJ, was marching in the parade with the school's band. So, Nathan and I applied our suntan lotion, grabbed our sunglasses and camera and headed off to the parade route to see if we could get a good spot. I had planned on taking pictures of DJ in his band uniform to send up to family in WI, but as luck would have it he was on the opposite side of the street we were and they marched by us way too fast for me to snap a picture of him. (I did manage to get the girl in front of him and the row behind him) So here are some pictures of today's festivities. Enjoy!
This is one of the pirate ships that invaded us today and threw beads. Nathan and I both came home with so many beads around that our necks hurt!
