The parade starts at 1:00 which meant Grant had no nap that day. With the promise of fire trucks, tractors, and candy being thrown at him I didn't have much hope of a nap anyway. He had been telling people all week that he was going to the parade. He was so excited.
|Grant and Uncle Kevin (also, someone gave Grant a popsicle on arrival)|
|Clearly, Grant wasn't a fan.|
|We got him over it pretty quick though.|
|Waving at the motorcycles starting the parade.|
|Here it comes!|
|One of my favorites! The Norwood Brass Firemen|
|Being led by the Cat in the Hat|
|Grant loved all the firetrucks (new and old)|
|And of course anything like this|
|Also a big fan of any floats tossing candy (nothing quite|
like a tootsie that you pick up off the street)
|Lots of creative stuff this year!|
|Most (if not all) of the local fire departments march in|
the Norwood parade and they always look so nice!
|I think this one might be my favorite fire truck|
|The Original Yanks Drum & Bugle Corps! Another|
one of my favorites to see and listen too!
|This was what I was willing to stand in the rain for! I love|
to hear the pipers. I overheard my sister telling my uncle that
one of these guys was the one who played Amazing Grace at both
my parents funerals - I'm not sure I knew that.
|They really sound great!|
|After 2 popsicles and 2 [small] lollipops Grant needed to burn some energy!|
More pictures from the 4th coming soon
