I laid down in the road for this one. The Marine Corps Orchestra comes here every year, and stay for the whole week playing here and there. They were at the elementary school today... The kids were ROCKIN'!! lol
The pooper scoopers following the horses...
The reactions of some of the Vets in the parade, seeing the great turn out in their honor...
It's pretty emotional when someone who was willing to die for your freedom starts clapping for YOU.
The clowns. They were pretty cool!!
Skipper... You're a super star now, baby!! I know Margarette will show you this. Loved seeing you in that fire truck. I know your Dad was smiling on you.
After the parade, there was a ceremony, and city BBQ. It was a GREAT ceremony. They laid wreaths at the town's memorial, and at the end, one of the members of the Marine Band played the Taps.
Then, an old plane flew over head, SO LOW!! It was really cool.
As if THAT isn't a great finish, there were parachuter's who came down FLYING THE FLAG... it was AMAZING.
And what city event is complete without a few furry friends? This one caught my eye...
The yard.... it's been taking up my days...
On the bright side, I got my load of sod out of the truck today, and I have all my seeds ready to plant.
It's supposed to rain today, and I think I'm running out of time... but I hope to get some seeds into the ground by the weekend.
Here's the NEW yard!! Just seeds to go!!
From against the house.
