The girls and I walked in the Memorial Day Parade again this year. This was Morgan’s first year and Ashley’s second. Morgan was thrilled that she got to carry a sign. They sang their song, but it was drowned out by the big diesel truck behind us.
One of the girl scout leaders bought red, white and blue hats for the whole troop to wear. Yeah, um, that wasn’t such a great idea. The hats had glitter all over them and the glitter transferred over onto the girls skin and hair. It was quite the mess. I gave them both baths after the fact and the glitter is still glued to their scalps. I honestly think it will be there for weeks if not months.
After the parade, Dan picked us up and we headed for the bazaar. We did all of the things one can do at the bazaar: ate fried dough, nachos, cotton candy, sno-cones, etc. The kids only got to go on two rides each. $10.00 for two tickets each. What a rip off. Those carnies are so nice, NOT!!! One pissed Dan off and that’s hard to do. Dan did quite well. Sounds funny, but if you knew Dan you would know that he hates bazaars, carnivals and fairs. I’m not fond of them either, but I like to please the kiddos.
After the bazaar, we went home and had a nice BBQ dinner and decided to camp out that night. More on that later.
