I Love a Parade!!!!

Who doesn't love a parade? Saturday the crew and I (except the princess she had a overnight trip with grandma to the river) went to a local parade. Ben's JR ROTC was marching in it and we went along for some support and fun.

We arrived an hour early so we did a little exploring!
