small town fun

There was a festival in town today complete with a parade, games, food, and music. The parade wasn't anything close to Macy's, in fact all it was were some old cars, lots of fire engines, but lots of candy thrown from trucks, and that is what makes a parade successful in our eyes. The children's area was filled with free games and the girls each got a pony ride. Will and Mary scored many prizes, including several which they picked out for their younger siblings. There were patriotic songs, a dunk-a-cop tank, which Will nailed on the first try, and $1 kiddy ice cream cones. The children had a fantastic time racing from one activity to another while baby Timmy fell asleep in my arms.

Cost: $6.
Memories: priceless.
