The Memorial Day Parade

Isn't it amazing how things look different when you see them thru a child's eyes?

Natalie and I went to the Memorial Day Parade in De Pere. I never would have thought it would be that much fun! See, when you sit close to the ground and look up at the parade, it looks so much different than when you just stand there or see it on TV:

The cars aren't just cars - they are BIG cars with lots of colors. And music. And one of them even had a trailer with people and flowers and

The firetrucks aren't just firetrucks - they are BIG and red and shiny and LOUD (and sometimes a little scary, so it's good to have Mommie near by).

There were clowns. And a bicycle with probably at least 20 people on it! And a REAL horse. And lots of dogs, soft cuddly dogs.

The candy was fun to pick up and put in Natalie's pockets, but the best thing was the flags she got. She held on to them for a looong time. And seing her wave her little flag while the veterans were walking by was just picture perfect:
Don't worry, she's having a good time, even though she's looking so focused. She's always very serious about fun - no time to smile for the camera, there's too much stuff to look at!
