4th of July Parade

This year our kids program at church walked in the parade to advertise for our VBS. I took a pic of the Sundrop monster truck to remind everyone that we have always known how awesome Sundrop is. It is our claim to fame, as it comes from Cabarrus County.
We lined up at the middle school and went down main street handing out icee pops. Yeah, it is as hot as it looks. I would like to add here that it is not cool for an adult to walk up to one of my kids and ask for a WHOLE bag of icee pops.
Some kids started out in the wagons, but we ended up trading them out for the coolers of icee pops. How cute is she? Couldn't you just eat her up? When I asked her she told me NO, lol.
The line of people at the start of the parade. We had allot of fun, and I saw many people that I haven't seen in a while. Several kids were shouting to the buddies so I made G get out of the truck and walk.....since they were all there to see him, haha.
P.S. I will be taking a week off from blogging to drive out to California with my two sisters. We leave in an hour, so I should probably be loading the car. ;)

Sounds like fun, if only it wasn't so hot!

I hope you're having fun on your cross country trip!

Have fun on the trip. I'll admit to having to google Sundrop. It seems like I may have seen the product somewhere before or it just kind of looks like Squirt.
We have over 600 acres in the Missouri River and it's supposed to remain at this flood stage for two more months. There are some mighty upset folks here abouts. But it should be an easy harvest it we have anything to harvest.
