How We Spent Our Morning

This Veteran's Day we got up early and headed out in the cold and snow to watch a parade.

We got bundled up so we wouldn't freeze.  It didn't work.  :)  It was cooooooold!

We played a little before the parade started.

The kids got tired of having their pictures taken and tried to get me to stop.  I didn't.  Even when they threw leaves at me.  :)

Finally the parade started.

The horse-drawn wagon is always a big hit with the kids.

We came home with several pockets full of parade loot.  Those Veterans sure to throw some good candy!  :)

What a great way to spend the holiday- I love the flag girl (used to be one & march in parades) and I love the Marines- so touching!!

Laura said...

That IS some serious candy for a parade!

Wow! I love the way you captured the parade; up-close. It looks like you have a very fun day. That reflection in the tuba is pretty cool! The photos of your children are fantastic!!

Wonderful parade collection!! Makes me really miss a nice, small town parade!! My kids had to go to school... which is why I went to work. Staying home and watching a parade... even if cold sounds so much more fun! I think my favorite is the tuba shot, btw... though they are all wonderful! =)
