So here's our gang all ready to set out for the parade. Aaron, Ava and all of my sis-in-laws eight kids. It turned out to be a beautiful morning and the best part was that the parade goes right by our condos so it was only a hop, skip and a jump away.
The kids had a great time at the parade and an even better time strolling through the Farmer's Market. It was crazy busy but we all managed to stick together! We really were a parade in ourselves... ha ha!
We hung out at home for the afternoon. Once evening rolled around, Ava, myself and the three oldest girls went to check out the festivities around Broadmoor Park. The highlights: caramel apples, pina coladas (non-alcoholic, of course) and the butterfly tent.
We have a great view of the fireworks from our place so we decided to watch them from home. Aaron is still not into the firework thing... Not sure if he ever will be! We managed to get him to stay outside with us as long as Daddy covered his ears for him. Not surprisingly, Ava fell asleep in Chey's lap during the fireworks. That girl can sleep through anything!!
All in all, an awesome day and well worth the effort!
