It is Syracuse Heritage Days!
I know I don't live in Syracuse, but since Tanner Clinic is in the parade every year I always look forward to this day. Sadly, I missed last years, but I am back baby.
It is just an all around good time. As I have mentioned many times before I work with some really AWESOME people, so I don't really need to say anymore on why this is so fun....
....but I will cause we also get to throw Frisbee's! Which I think is SO cool (the parade patrons seem to like it too, since many yelled at us to 'frisbee them' (?)). I however am not great in the art of the Frisbee throw, well I can when I think about it, but I just get so excited in the parade and throw it a little haphazardly. This year I threw one into a ditch, and only hit the truck pulling our trailer, and the truck for the float in front of us. It could have been worse, I could have hit a small child like Alex.
Anyway this year did not disappoint. It was so much fun! Also we didn't have to come up with the float or anything this year, we now have people for that! It was so nice to take the stress out of it and just show up and throw stuff at people.
One of the best parts of the parade was the very beginning. Alex (see above) wasn't going to go but Becca and I talked her into it. Well we got to the first parade patrons, and she threw out her first handful of candy and the kids all ran to it and she exclaimed: "I LOVE PARADES! I LIKE THROWING CANDY!". I used the word exclaimed because she was SO excited!!!!! I laughed SO hard. I think it was a you had to be there situation, but I was there and I am telling you it was funny!
After the parade, I went over and picked up these two rug-rats, and took them over to the park for some fun and games.
They were SO excited about all the rides! It took a little while to walk to them and the whole way they just couldn't stop talking about how excited they were. The first ride they wanted to go on was the roller coster. Which they LOVED!
Then we went to the potty and on the way back to the rides we stopped for some face painting. B got butterflies around her wrist (not pictured).
Then it was right back to the Merry-Go-Round.
They yodeled like their favorite disney character Jessie.
The Motorcycles. They told me they were driving to California.
The Spaceships. Where they were flying to Mars.
And the Cars. Where they drove to Nevada.
They were so much fun! I am glad I got to take them. After we went and had some corn dogs, cotton candy, and about 3 bottles of water each! It was a very hot, fun, awesome day!
