The Eagle Mountain Parade

This morning Ross decided that we should go to the Eagle Mountain parade. We hadn't planned on it, but it was close, and very few exciting things ever happen close to us, so we decided to go check it out. Emma and Sara grabbed all the candy they could, which task was made challenging due to our close proximity to some professional parade veterans. (Those kids were fast!) Here are some pictures. We all know that is the only reason ya'll are here.... :)

I bought the girls Otter Pops from a super cute little entrepreneur.

Sara is pretty.
Ross is hot!
Jack is funny.
and ticklish!
We were in a great spot as lots of the entertaining entries stopped right in front of us. This guy was taken out in a wild west duel.

This cannon was for the Civil War re-enactors.

Waiting for more candy.

Westlake Marching Band. I can't help it. The band geek streak runs deep in me. Look at Sara covering her ears....
We got all kinds of swag like this hat, a frisbee, and a t-shirt in addition to lots of candy. Not bad for a spur of the moment weekend entertainment idea!

We left the parade early to get on home and prepare for Jack's birthday party, which will be posted tomorrow.

I think.

Don't quote me on that....

I was talking the other day to my sister-in-law about how excited I am to have little kids for reasons of parade and Halloween candy. Your life rocks.
