I woke up early his morning! :o) Well...I had to be woken up. ;o) I wasn't able to get to sleep last night until around 4:30 this morning.
The parade starts at 9:00. So...I was already running late! :o)
Then I get a call from my daughter after a few sips from from first cup of coffee...asking if I was ready! lol She had over slept too! Whew! :o)
I didn't get to finsih my cup of coffee. I did the best I could to get woke up enough to get dressed, get my caneras' and out the door.
By the time we get to the main street the parade goes down...it was late! :o( I felt sooo bad. ;o( I didn't want my grandson to miss a thing! But he did. :o( My fault.
We found a place to stand so he could see perfect! :o) I took some pictures and then I had my daughter take some for me. I wasn't fully awake yet still.
I was showing him to wave at everyone that went by! :o) Then he started to blow them kisses too! lol :o) Even the big guys driving the huge Army trucks! :o)
(sorry aboutthe pictures...thats the only way that I could display them)
Our parade only lasts maybe 10 minutes at the most! Nothing too big, but it's a tradition for us. :o)
After it ended...my daughter was headed out to the cemetary to her grandmother's grave. I'd take her there myself every year.
Since I was a little girl...this day was a tradition for me as well. My grandparents would come to our house and pick us up. They would already have chocolate milk and doughnuts for us to have while we watched the parade! :o) Either the parade was longer and better back then...or it was because I was just smaller, I don't know! ;o) It was great though, just to be with my grandparents! ;o) It was an every year tradition that I always looked foward to. ;o)
I did the same thing with my kids too! They too looked forward to the chocolate milk and doughnuts for the parade! :o)
This year...we got them just in case! :o) In came my daughter and had some before we left! :o)
Just good memories and traditions! :o) I hope that my kids will carry these on as well! :o) It maybe something small...but it's something big! :o)
Gods blessings to all of you! ;o) Have a great day!
