The 4th and the Reunion

This last week was certainly a full one.  I went to my moms and then to a family reunion.  Sorry I didn’t make the rounds to all the blogs.  I tried on Thursday to make the rounds for 52 Weeks but it took me 20 minutes to go to 5 blogs and then it locked up on me.   I’m trying to convince my mom to get a new computer!

4th 1

It was so great to go to our family reunion.  My boys have been waiting and waiting to see Lineman’s Uncle Randy… or Farmer as he is usually called!  The caught sight of him and wouldn’t leave him alone.

We went to the 100th anniversary for Laurel.  They had a parade, vendors, a band, and of course fireworks.  The parade went on and on and on!  It was a long parade for such a small town!  Thankfully Grampa was there to hold Little Man for a bit.

And when Grampa wasn’t holding him, that’s when Farmer would take over.  I don’t know if I’ve said it on here before but my Little Man loves being with the boys.

One of the floats came by with water guns and Farmer and Little Man got hit with water.  As you can see Little Man wasn’t too fond of that, what a chance to snuggle up!

4th 2

Another float came by throwing out popsicles.  Tons and tons of popsicles.  Jackpot!

Grampa got some popsicles too.  Little Man got some beads and my oldest son got a new hat (yes, all thrown from floats).  Talk about a crazy and fun parade!

Wow...I knew about the hat Bridger got, but what a bonus to get popsicles on a hot summer day. PERFECT!

This looks like a delightful time! Love grandpa and the popsicle.

I wanted to tell you, I am passing the Happy Scrap Award on to you. Please stop by my blog for details.

Your friends who lost their son have been on my heart, as has your own family, who I am sure are suffering greatly. I do hope you are finding comfort in our Great El Shaddai.

Beads? Is Larual just outside New Orleans?

Small town parades are really fun. I remember the 4th of July parade in Two Dot. Maybe 40 pieces. They came up the sreet, turned around and went back down the sreet.

I'm assuming from you description that this parade was somewhat larger. Glad you had a great time - good memories.
