small town parade

We went to the local parade yesterday at noon. It was lots of fun, but terribly hot. Of course my pregnant body exaggerates the heat, but it actually was a cooker. The parade was filled with all the local yocals, and our town definitely has some colorful characters. We waved our homemade flag beside them proudly.

Zia collected a horde of candy, to my dismay. I don’t remember parades raining so much candy. We settled on eating one candy per day, although I’ve already given way and she had two today.  I need to hold the line. The poor kid falls apart when she has much sugar. One seems to be ok if she has a good snack just before.

We planned on going out to Broomfield last night for fireworks, since the fire ban here is still going strong. By evening, though, my body had a different idea. We stayed home and I exchanged a night out for a nice long soak in my claw-foot tub. It was much better than fireworks.

Hope you had a great Fourth of July!

    The parade looks like it was loads of fun. I’m with you on the candy…I don’t remember a lot of it either. I can only imagine how hot you were. I had to endure August in NC with both of mine…ugh!
