Everybody Loves a Parade

Last week, the kids, Chris, my mom, and I went to the world-famous Hewitt-Trussville Homecoming Parade. It's right up there with the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade...only a little shorter, and a few less celebrities, and no towering balloons. But, other than that, exactly the same.

We set up our chairs in a prime corner spot, and waited...

...and waited...

...and, you guessed it, waited...

And then, the blaring sirens announced the beginning of the parade (much to Jack's dismay).

Then we waved with excitement as the homecoming court, football team, band, and about two whole floats passed by.

And three and half minutes and a bag full of non-chocolate candy later, we headed back to the van.

But, the funny thing is, the kids were thrilled. It really is the simple things.
