Well, it has been exactly a month since Piper Ruby was born. I'm STILL pretty.....not normal. I'm not even allowed to take walks yet---good grief. Oh, well-I guess that's just going to take longer this time around. At least I have a beautiful, happy, healthy baby.
I took Violet to her first 4th of July parade. It was a bit smaller than I was expecting, but she enjoyed it. There are always nice older veterans with flags and funny hats. I wish my Grandpa was still around. He liked a good parade.
Violet liked the horses. It's not a Texas parade without cowboys and horses.
Kiddos on bikes. I especially like the little decorated wagons.
The parade was in Greenville, Texas, the county seat. The local school is large. So----where were the twirlers and cheerleaders and drill team? Don't they live for parades? No beauty queens. There was only a tiny marching band. No one even threw CANDY!!!! I told Violet that was the best part.....people threw CANDY to you from pretty, decorated floats. Oh, not to mention there was not one single solitary float.
These ladies should be throwing us candy. I miss a good old fashioned parade.
Maybe I can find a more traditional one in Dallas next year. I want Violet to see a proper parade while she's still young enough to enjoy it.
