A Parade of Their Own

With it raining this morning and Baby Root Beer still recovering from surgery, we decided to skip on the city's parade this morning.

The younger kids were super bummed.  So they decided to put on a parade of their own.

There was only one float in the parade and they spent maybe 5 minutes decorating it lol!

It turns out that they just wanted the candy that is associated with parades.

So I gave them some.....all I could find around the house was some candy canes from last christmas, some mints, and some mini lollipops.

Then my hubby and I sat out front and cheered them on while they chucked candy at us.....

I am grateful for that the sun came out for their 'parade.'
