This parade has been a tradition since Daddy and I dated. We LOVE July 4th & we LOVE catching the parade/fireworks festivities of Evergreen Park. We always start the night with our only Wojo’s shakes of the year (Peanut butter and Chocolate for Me; Mint Chocolate Chip for Daddy). You obviously follow your mother in this respect also….We had our waters and fruit packed and waited patiently in our spot for over an hour before the parade started. Your cousins joined us as well and they have become quite the candy-catchers – I am sure they will teach you as you get bigger! You did GREAT & only cried during the extremely long fire engine parade introduction (which for MOST of us was obnoxiously loud!) The noise of the fireworks seemed to disturb you, so you and daddy watched them from afar. This will be a tradition that I’m apt to keep for years to come.
