Founders Day!

Founders Day 2009 is now in the record books. Great weather this year - about 70 and sunny for the parade that stepped off around 10am. Jack knew it was important to stay hydrated for the big day ahead...

Waiting is never fun - especially when you're 2 years old. Jack and Ryan made the best of it. Jack entertained himself by waving his $1 flag that I got him... while his buddy Ryan peeled a banana.

The theme this year was public safety. We had firetrucks and police cars from all over the area. When those firetrucks went by it was so loud. They had kids pulling the air horns - no pictures of that part of the parade since I had Jack in my arms and covering his ears. It was really loud! After the long line of emergency vehicles went by it was a better parade - at least for the kids. A lot of floats being pulled by dump trucks (!), tow trucks (!) and tractors (!). Jack liked that part of it the best. A lot of the kids on the parade were throwing candy. Jack enjoyed a nice root beer flavored Dum Dum during the parade.



Not sure what this was part of ... but as we know, any good parade has a rolling tiki bar?

Here is a quick video of Jack waving to the folks in the parade...


After the parade - we headed down to the high school field where there was a carnival going on. The line was about 50 people deep for a hot dog - didn't even both trying. Regardless the boys were getting tired, the parents were getting hot... and we hit the road Jack...
