This Veteran's day the boys and I went with Grandpa D. and Grammie F. to the parade in Leavenworth.  It was quite the event.  The newspaper estimated that there were over 15,000 people in attendance.  There were something like 200 entries and it took 1.5 hours.  The boys were so good and were interested the whole time.  I was glad for them to see us honor our veterans.  They were glad to see up close some of their very favorite things: cars, horses, motorcycles, soldiers, and drums.  Also, let's not forget, THE CANDY.

The boys have enjoyed getting to spend time with Grammie while she's visiting.

At 11 everything halted while all the buglers played Taps.  I got goosebumps.

The weather was beautiful.

Milo started waving back at the parade participants.  It made my heart squeal from the cuteness.

This float was remarkable- soldiers posing as the iconic Iwo Jima photograph. 

Milo enjoying his sucker and watching local girl scout troups marching along.

Yay!  Parades!

This entry was a dog that rides on the back of a pony.  I thought it deserving of a photograph.
