The Mayberry Parade.
It's really called Milford's Memorial Day Parade.. but seriously... you feel like you are back in the 50's on the streets of Mayberry just waiting for Barney and Andy to walk by. This was Adie's 3rd parade because she was born a few weeks before the one in 07. Lucky girl. Of course this was Joya's first parade and what did she do??? You guessed it...
Slept through the entire thing and looked mighty cute doing it!
This was the first time I brought my camera so I could share with you all and this monumental event.
Here is Adie awaiting the big parade. Papa even brought her a bucket to pick up candy that the floats chuck at ya. (And when I say chuck, I mean chuck. A few times I wanted to throw the candy back at them. I refrained.. I am a mom now. Have to set examples.)
Am I the worst mom every for taking this picture?
She got over the riffles shooting for a few minutes to pick up one piece of candy...
And then the police cars and fire trucks came through with their sirens on. And the fire trucks were spraying water on the parade bystanders...
That was the only piece of candy she picked up. She's not so much a fan of the Mayberry parade with the guns shooting, loud sirens, water spraying fire trucks and kids hurling candy at you.
And there wasn't one but TWO septic trucks in the ol' parade.
What's hilarious is that their sirens were the sound of a big ol' fart.
Or it would have been really great if they would have had clear tanks so we could get a better glimpse of their services.
Or we REALLY would have liked it if they would have sprayed us like the fire trucks did.
At least they threw tootsie rolls at us.
Okay.. you all know I love bathroom humor so the 2 septic trucks in the ol' Mayberry Parade cracked me up and I had to share it with ya!
