A Veteran’s Day Parade

Happy Veteran’s Day and a HUGE thank you to all the veterans and their service to our country!

I’ve had all the kiddos at home with me since late Friday morning.  It’s been glorious, for the most part.  We took in a parade on Saturday morning, which was suuuuper long (2 hours), but a lot of fun and nice to get outside and enjoy our 80 degree temps.  We’ve been waiting for this :D

Teething Noah

This little guy has been a teething monster.  Everyone has been having a blast with this.  I mean, he’s in pain and very irritable and the hubby and I are unable to do much of anything.  There may or may not have been late night parties that involved crying from all parties.  He was also up at 1am and finally fell asleep on the couch at 3am.  Good thing he’s cute or I might lose my cool.

Mini Ponies

After being up for an unplanned 2 hours the night before, who wouldn’t want to take in a parade at 10am?  Might as well, since sleep is just not in the cards.

Kids and Flags

Patiently waiting for the parade to begin.

Camel Me and the Kids Mini Semi

Mini Semi 2 Jesse and the Kids Shriners

The hubby was super excited to see the Shriner’s.  They are pretty dang cool!  We all loved the little show they put on in the parade.  Such a fun group!  Pretty sure the hubby will be one when he’s old and retired ;)

Me and the Kids 2 Pom Ladies

These are the POMS.  Seriously?!  If I am privileged enough to live long enough to see my 70’s, 80’s, 90’s, or even 100’s, I’m definitely joining this group of ladies (insert whistles)!  I’ve always wanted to be a back-up dancer and since that didn’t happen, this is as close as I will get.  These ladies were rockin’ it like nobody’s business!

My Boys

While the girl and I were at church, these two goofballs got to party it up with daddy for a couple of hours.  Cutest kids I know!  They love to play in our vehicles.


We ended Saturday evening by roasting hot dogs and marshmallows.  This is our first campfire at this house and we’ve been here almost a year and a half.  I have a feeling we’ll be doing a lot of this this winter :)
