Now what would a parade be with out flags and a tribute to Veterans? Ours started out with a bang! There were old cars in the pre-parade, floats, color guards, marching bands, dancing groups, new cars, and BIG trucks, (my big boy’s personal favorite.) The weather was perfect, the crowds well behaved, and as they say, a good time was had by all. I used the pan feature on my camera and ended up with 700 plus shots….not all of which were worth saving. I will be sharing some of them with you this next week…but then I promise I will move on to something new.
I love activites that are fun and educational. The Audubon Society provided this for the little ones. They made rubbings of bird feet..and…(my favorite)…handed out books. Love those books!
1 day and counting….(my daughter took my bag chair this evening…she is setting up our chairs early Saturday morning in order to save our place along the parade route)
At Kids Day last Saturday, there were several adults who took the opportunity to dress up and have fun. This clown was spending time with each youngster and then presenting them with “balloon” creatures.
2 more days and counting….
As part of the Irrigation Festival, a carnival arrives each year. This young lady and I just happen to catch the trucks as they brought the rides, ticket booths, and sideshows. I’ll bet that by the time I get to work in the morning they will be well on their way to having it all set up for the grand opening on Thursday.
3 Days and counting….
Healthy Families hosted this booth at Kids Day. Rocks were provided and masterpieces were created. One saw lots of parents and grandparents holding on to the paperplates while the rocks dried and the children went on to more booths.
5 days and counting to the Irrigation Festival
Did you read “Dear Abby” yesterday? When selecting a picture for this Valentine’s Day, this picture came to mind. In fairness, it was my camera, I was there, but I didn’t take this picture. It was taken at the rose garden in Tacoma and this beauty was there with her daughter. Don’t forget to call or spend some time with someone is alone today.

My apologizes for missing the midnight posting. It’s a long but not very interesting story. I’ll be back on line to visit your blogs very soon, but for the next couple of days, I’ll be posting pictures (thank you word press), but be off line. Soon…I miss it.
