Everyone loves a parade! And there's nothing like a small town parade!
The temperature was simply perfect, mild warm weather, low humidity. But beware of those nasty little ants!
Here's the tri-high school band. One of our neighbors, a buddy of Kristofer's, played in it. They were very good. The color guard in front also took part in the opening ceremonies for the fireworks.
In case you can't read what this sign says from R.S. Mann Jewelers, "Now, if she said she wanted an engagement TRUCK, you wouldn't hesitate would you?!"
The next five pictures pan around the fields at Newnan High School where people started to gather for the fireworks after the parade.
Kathleen gets comfortable at our spot. We found a great place perched at the top of an embankment.
Keri Lynn took Keva around to the various jumpers, slides and activities taking place at the football field. She was so tired afterwards, that she sat contently, flag held firmly in hand, and watched everything from her seat.
The rest of the kids ran around the fields playing with friends that showed up from church and going to the jumpers. Keith talked to a few people that we knew, but I stayed at my chair and soaked it all in. It was so nice to just sit and watch and rest. We had our ice chest at the ready with 24 water bottles, of which all but four were consumed, as well as a dozen or so bologna sandwiches and a box of Ritz crackers. No fuss; no muss.
Thank You, God, for our country!
