I took the boys into the parade in the Big City. The Toddler filled his Uncle's hat up with candy, sat next to him on the curb and was generally attached to his hip. I discovered the Toddler is
|Popular Float = Candy & Toys|
|Feeling a little guilty for not having my family on the FRG float, but we were late for the parade as it was.|
The boys' favorite part of the parade of course were the tractors. I love a rural parade, the old vehicles and farm equipment driving down main street always make me smile. My favorite though is always the unicycles, because I have no coordination or balance and it amazes me every time.
|Ooooh...what does brother have?|
|It is nice to have a parade buddy to help wrangle kids.|
|The Toddler showing off his new comb....|

We walked to the park for some more festivities, my sister is part of a Belly Dancing Group...but the heat was getting to me so I missed the performance. The Big D, a friend and I sought out some a/c and a lunch run (Uncle D was having fun with the Toddler and asked if he could stay with him).
The Toddler played on the slide, the swings, a jungle gym, and and and ...everything there was to play on. Uncle D treated him to some cotton candy, and he played with some half-cousins. We call them half cousins, they aren't really related, but Uncle D has other nephews and a niece the same age and they are all growing up together, so they seem like family.
|I have to giggle he pulls his hat down so far I have no idea how he sees anything.|
Our little friends "the 1/2 cousins"
I love seeing that I am not the mother of the only impatient Toddler.
