We headed down to Friendswood on the 4th for their annual parade. I googled it and found out that this was the 114th year that Friendswood has held a parade!
We were hot and sweaty, but managed to have fun anyway. Asher especially enjoyed himself this year. He was just 17 months last year and I was 8 months pregnant, so we both had a much better time this year!
Grammy, Aunt Melissa, and cousin Reagan (AND THE STAR OF THE WHOLE PARADE WAS UNLCE SEAN WHO PULLED THE FLOAT WITH HIS SUBURBAN!)were in the parade so Asher and Daddy ran out to wave to them when their float came by.
The marching bands and the fire trucks were also a big hit!
Jude had fun, too. This may be one of my all-time favorite pictures of him, sweaty head and all.
A lady sitting in front of us, who told me proudly that this was her 45th year at the parade, asked if she could hold Jude. She looked like she had held a grandbaby or two in her day, so I let her. Jude sat there for quite a while--happy to be in the shade, I'm sure.
Here's our little family abiding by the "Make sure one person is not looking at the camera" rule.
After the parade, we headed to the park where they had food, music, and games for the kids. The boys enjoyed their first sno-cone (red of course to match their shorts.)
And I enjoyed my yearly sausage link.
We had just about melted away so we decided it was time to call it a day. Asher was still reeling from all the fun he had.
And Judah did not make it out of the parking lot.
