Snakes, Parades and my Dad oh YEAH!

Very buys weekend with my Dad here.

Caden found a dead snake in the driveway.
It's small and dead, both good things.

We went to the Fireman's Parade in town Saturday.

That sure was a lot of fun.

Only draw back were these folks that came and stood right in front of our chairs! This is what I was able to see and I'm sure the guy farted! About killed us!

Pissed my Hubby off so much that he took his chair and moved it right in front of them! I was dying of embarrassment! My Dad, he thought this was hilarious!

Colton in his last Fireman's parade.

Chyann in her first Fireman's' parade.

After the parade we went to the fair grounds for Caden to do the penny hunt. He found about a buck in change. Then it was time for the pedal tractor pull. Caden was sure he would win the trophy. Unfortunately he didn't, but handled the loss well.
He came in fifth out of eight boys.

We didn't get home till late and stayed up visiting even later.

Next day we hung around the house.

The kids all showed off their skills to Grandpa.
Shooting, football, horse riding, music, ect..

And we let the new fowl out.

Those geese are pretty scary. Flapping and squawking at me.

So far they've caused no problems. If they do I know a gal
at work who's folks will buy them to eat.

The kids and Grandpa yesterday morning before school.
We goofed around taking pictures and they missed the bus.
Grandpa ended up giving them a ride to school.

It was a nice, but way too short of a visit.
My Dad didn't realize it been so long since he'd been here.
I reminded him of EXACTLY when the last time we'd seen him
had been and he couldn't believe it. Wanted to know why
I let him get away with not visiting more. What can I say to that?
He said he was busy.. Anyhow he says he'll be coming in May
for Colton's graduation. We'll be looking forward to that.

You will never be able to boss your folks around! I can't get my folks to do what I want. Parents, they have a mind of their own.

That's so nice that your dad visited. It looks like a nice parade too. But what exactly is a firemen's parade?

Too bad you had such a poor view for the parade.

That is a nice photo with your dad and the kids.
