Everybody Dies Famous...

Well, unfortunately I worked the 2nd, 3rd, & 4th of this month and missed all our small town festivities we hold annually to celebrate the 4th of July. Oh, yes. And how I treasure our celebrations. So what do these small town festivities consist of you ask? Well: hot dog supper at our volunteer fire department, little kids everywhere dressed in red, white, and blue (usually cupcake in hand or all over their face), the "huge" parade all the kids ride their bikes in, and all the old men standing around and cooking the hash and BBQ sold the next morning. *sigh* Yes, I hated to miss it! :)
Thankfully we have pics so I feel like I was ALMOST there! This post is dedicated to a group of guys and galls that always put forth great effort for the parade. This group is considered the "younger group" in our community, although most have graduated college now and not young at all. But they always participated in the parade and, God love 'em, they still do. And we love to see what theme they will chose. This years theme: 4th of July Flashbacks where they dresses as little kids again. But it made me flashback to previous parades they've participated in. I love their enthusiasm!
