Funny note: CAM and I were in our Alabama game-day apparel. WHM had a full-on meltdown that he was NOT wearing an Alabama shirt this morning. We are raising this kid right!
The weather was funny -- damp and just warm enough to not have us all shivering, but it never rained. The parade was wonderful -- it was pretty lengthy and although there were no marching bands, there were enough firefighter music groups and pipes that the music kept on coming. Mick and I took a bunch of photos of all sorts of cool things. I'll spare you most of them, but here are a bunch of our favorites.
|Yowsa. I need a haircut even more than I realized!|
|Those sirens are LOUD!|
|Laughing at the "big boot car!"|
|I'm thinking they've had this plate since ... well, since plates!|
|Aunt Sheila is one of their coaches and as I took these pictures, she was hugging and talking with CAM. So cool!|
|WHM loved this fire truck!|
|That's the McDonald's, folks. Don't tell me it's not the coolest McD's ever ... 'cause it is. :)|
|One group stopped and gave the kids suckers. This is what they said.|
