I Love a Parade!

My husband is not a big parade go-er, but he took pity on me this year and agreed to attend the Boise Independence Day parade with me! The parade was a very late 6:30 p.m., so it was pretty warm by the time it rolled through. Little did we know, the parade would devolve into a big water fight [see gang of little desperadoes over my husband's shoulder in pic]. Oddly, the biggest showing was by the Hare Krishnas! Who would have guessed that! My favorite part was the throwing of popsicles near the end. The one I got was grape.

We had dinner downtown then walked back home to save our wiener dog from death by fireworks. We were able to see the fireworks from the cities of Boise, Star, and Eagle from the top of our property! Happy Independence Day!

My grandmother would have loved this entry!

This pic's for you Marie..."the Conservative Express!" HAH! Just a little self-promotion. You may remember Mister Rammell's unusual baboon commercial from the Super Bowl...

Can you make my head a little bigger?

I loved these shots of America's youth sporting these random banners reinforcing our rights.

Not during peacetime, anyway.

The union trick/teamsters had the biggest arsenal that fought back. And based on the position of my photo, yep, I got a little wet.

I am so honored that I "made" your blog! So nice of Jon to accompany you to the parade...I am a parade lover myself, as is my mom! Looks like a good old-fashioned parade, conservatives and all, in the true Idaho fashion!!
