Everyone loves a parade

We live in the country in Southern Idaho.  Part of country living is the excitement surrounding the county fair, including the parade.  Thanks to a dedicated aunt and uncle, we had some pretty sweet seats. 

 The parade included lots of horses, which baby loved.

 Local high school cheer teams...Go Declo!

 Vintage vehicles.

 A crazy guy riding his motorcycle on a semi and specially made cage.

 My children's favorite part...folks handing out candy by the bucketfuls. 

And local kiddos showing off their skills.  How would you like to do back handsprings down a 3 mile parade route? 

When we first moved here, I was filled with trepidation.  I had grown up in a large metropolitan area, and was worried about living in a small community.  But, I have grown to love it.  Now we're preparing to relocate.  I got a little misty eyed during the parade.  It is fun to see folks you know and love marching down the road.

I think parades like this are the best. Sometimes I wish we were in a more small town place. Good luck as you are buying your house and moving. Oh so stressful. Hang in there.

We love parades too! Small world - we live in south-eastern Idaho in a small farming town. They can still throw candy here, but again there are only 10 or 11 floats. :)
