I live in the downtown area of our dear little town and can walk to all of these wonderful events (minus the movie night). I can even sit in my back yard and enjoy the fireworks during the 4th of July celebration. Pretty cool!
This year I invited my Niece Robyn who lives in Nampa to come and watch the parade with us. It is much more exciting when you watch the parade with little children. Robyn has three little children.
She almost didn't make it because the police blocked off all entrances to my house. I told her to tell them that she lived here and the mean old police wouldn't let her through on Locust Grove and Pine. Luckily there was a nicer police officer who let her come at Franklin and 3rd East. I posted a comment about this on Meridian City's facebook site and they got back to me. Hopefully they will speak to the Police officer who was soooo mean - maybe he will have better commonsense and let residents to their houses - sheesh!
Anyway... she made it. It was a rainy day - a rainy parade. We loaded up with our umbrellas and set off to the parade. Her little boy, Colt, Robyn my niece, Jayden and Halle. Such a cute little family. Her husband was traveling back from Pocatello and couldn't join us - his name is Jason.
At the beginning of the parade we get FREE chocolate milk - the best way to begin the DAIRY DAY PARADE - woo hoo... Colt, Jayden and Halle showing us their yummy milk.
I had to get a picture of Brady drinking his chocolate milk.
We made out with tons of candy for the kids and 3 Dairy Day Parade shirts that they were throwing out to the crowd. Robyn got one for her and her husband Jason. This is Brady's Dairy Day T-Shirt. This is the front of the T-Shirt.
The back of the shirt --- Have you had your 3 today?
I took tons of pictures of the parade. This is the genie and his flying carpet.
The camel.. The legs moved back and forth as it marched forward along the parade route.
Lots of cows. The paint was running on this poor cow - from the rain. A cow truck!
Pulling a cow family and their cute barn.
Hallee was brave enough to sit on my lap - which kept the chill away.
