My children have looked forward to the county fair parade since we attended last year. We even had the same awesome seats we had last year...thanks to dedicated aunties! What fun to sit with beloved cousins and vie for candy.
I thought I might share some of my favorite moments. Of course we had our share of rodeo royalty:
I loved this little caballero on his pony.
And the most creative dresses...made from newspapers! Courtesy one of our local weekly newspaper companies.
My kiddos enjoyed all the freebies handed out.
Although the fire trucks were a bit loud...
...and the occasional scuffles over candy caused a bit of contention...
...a grand time was had by all. Afterwards, we enjoyed a picnic with all the cousins. It is so nice to be close to family again. I've learned something about myself since last year...I really am a small town girl at heart, who married a definitive country boy.
What fun do you have planned for the weekend?
