Ogden 24th Parade
July 31st brings us to the end of
It was fun being patriotic the whole month
a Papa's tractor
On the 24th my youngest son was coming to pick up his dad and go to the parade in Ogden,
a tradition when my four children were babes
I sent Mr. roses
and stayed home in the peace.
but then we quit
for a good reason...
Horses. Horses and more Horses.
not that we don't like horses
it's just the fabulous floats we were
spoiled with in our younger days
just never showed up.
I emailed 3 friends the night before and said that no matter
what I was NOT going to the parade.
Little did I know...
Morning of the 24th
our daughter/husband and 4 children come walking in.
Middle son/wife and baby were next.
Then Oldest son/wife and 2 children.
all from out of town.
Youngest son was so busy speeding
to get here first,
he got pulled over
How could I not go???
pulled off perfectly.
It was a little rainy
but so nice to be with my family,
all of them
even if the parade was
D_ _ b.
Someone suggested a tailgate lunch
Burger bar in Roy
How easy was that?
No fussing over fancy
salads and desserts
or even going to the grocery store.
Oh those greasy deep fried
onion rings and mushrooms
what I am really saying is
isn't the spur of the moment
some of the
best of times?
You do it
you know what I man.
the parade of July 2012
the year my family got me back...
(i'm on to you all now)
It was so nice today
as we watched one of our grandchildren
taking in her swim lessons.
and posed for photo's.
And because I am a shopkeeper
who follows the law
quarterly sales taxes got mailed today!
