The kids were ready for the parade to get started ... long before it arrived!!

When the fire truck passed by this little girl ... it sounded it's siren and it hurt her ears.

Had the shot and then she saw me aimng at her and I was caught LOL

This boy climbed up on top of a pickup truck while everyone else was watching the parade .. and was proud of himself

I missed our annual parade Tuesday night... when it was still cool and I needed a jacket. May get to around 81 degrees today and won't get back into the 50's for about a week.... then it looks like it will be in the 60's the week of Christmas.... May be another year to have a water gun fight on Christmas day (long story but its basically our version of a snowball fight since we are wearing shorts and still quite warm).

Loved the kids Jim... gives me some ideas for a shot sometime if I ever slow down. If anyone finds any extra time please send it my way, I need a vacation again already :shock:

Adrain... we have them for store openings .. or new barns .. or new septic systems .. but this one is the annual Christmas parade .. Mr. and Mrs. Santa were in the parade and were throwing out candy as were all the people on other floats.

Had a lot of people show up .. lot of fun ..saw some folks hadn't seen in a long time.

We don't really shoot our kids .... when they become teenagers we seal them in a large barrel and feed them through a knothole.. when they reach 17 .. we close the knothole!!

I believe that is attributed to Mark Twain!!! :shock: :D
