Last weekend the boys and I joined grandma and grandpa and some friends on the side of the road to watch the 52nd Annual Armed Forces Day Parade! Jack was so incredibly excited about it, as he remembered the parade from last year and was very ready to see those marching bands again! The boys' friend had a birthday party in the morning, so we grabbed lunch on our way to the parade and ate it while we watched the parade! The boys were so good and I was so proud of them- they were both completely absorbed in the parade and watched each and every exhibit! Even Sam paid attention to the whole thing, staring at each exhibit as it went by and every time one went past us he'd crane his neck to see what was coming next! Jack didn't sit through the whole thing, but only because he insisted that every time a big American flag came by he and grandma needed to stand up and place their hands over their hearts and wave their little American flags. He was cracking us up! I think we are definitely a parade family!
