Melon Days Parade

We all got together in our normal spot to watch the parade.  It seemed like it was a really long parade this year as there were a lot of entries.  The kids collected tons of candy and we all had a good time.  I feel bad that I did not get pictures of everyone that was there. I missed getting pictures of Allie, Greg, and Heather -  Kinsey and Kalen (Mandy was busy setting up the scrap book stuff, and I also missed getting a picture of my dad, as he joined us to watch this year. 
This was Zachary's first melon days and this is how he started the parade out.  Wanting a bottle.  That's ok.  By the time the parade got to us he was all done and so happy with a huge smile on his face the whole time.  He just loved seeing all of the people and everything that was going on.  Let's just say that his nape were really short while we were at the park.

Kylie and Zachary!
Candy time!
Zach taking it all in!  His melon shirt looked so cute on him.  I am glad that it fit because we thought that it was going to be too big.

This was just too cute.  The wonder bread truck was throwing out bags of bread and one of the split open.  Nathan ran out there to pick it up like it was just the greatest thing.

It was so fun to see you and your family at Melon Days. I think our High School reunion was a success too. I told a friend what I done this last weekend and how we had 8 of the 14 we graduated with there, she laughed out loud for a while, I couldn't understand what was so funny. :)

What a terrible picture-looks like I'm doing a bust excercise but it was fun and crazy weekend but then what would Melon Days be if not hectic? Was fun to have everyone here.
