The Labor Day Parade
is a tradition in my family.
My sister, Linda lives in the town
where a big parade takes place.
We all do the parade and
then we do lunch at her digs.
Our guys were working on
Maggie and Kylie's basement
so it was just me, Annie, Maggie
and their kiddos.
Abbie opted out.
I told the girls if they would do the cooking,
I would keep the bigs overnight
then take them to the parade.
They could bring the babies and food later.
We met up with Aunt Jackie,
We got a prime spot right on the curb.
Lots of firemen came from all over
to march in the parade.
There was a fly-over but I missed the photo op.
There was a piece from the Twin Towers on a float
but I didn't get a picture.
I was on a picture taking roll, huh?
We stood for every flag
and taught the kids
to put our hands over our hearts.
I got faklempt.
Aubrie was uber excited to see
a dog in a stroller.
They were armed with candy bags.
They got way more than they needed.
Mom and Dad were in the shade and Dad was chilly.
My niece and her little candy eaters
were in attendance.
Jack started out incognito.
I think he heard there was a blog paparazzo
but then he realized she was a slacker.
One of my most committed blog readers/ friend
came over to say hi.
I reciprocated by grabbing her boob.
I told her I knew
Oct. was breast cancer awareness month
and I was just helping her out
with a quickie exam.
She said thanks, but she was good.
She's the cutie in the black behind the pink jacket,
behind the belly dancer.
She opted to sit across the street from me.
Our family had lunch and a nice visit.
Lots of baby cuddling.
And lots of catching up.
My sister Judy, my brother John and his family.
His kids were typical teens!
It was a great day.
I hope you had a good holiday weekend too.
God bless America.
