We spent much of Saturday morning at this year's events:
- 5K Run in the Son (Okay, only Kyler went)
- Annual Community Days Parade (Main feature of today's post)
- Lunch provided by our church
Without further ado, here are some pictures from our parade. (Sorry if you're a Not-Quite-Country-Girl follower. I was sitting about ten feet away from her where she also took pictures.)
|High School Marching Band|

|Campaigners of every age. HI KELLI!|

|One of our princess candidates (Her mama is my childhood best friend)|
|A couple of men from church with a more "unique" display|
(No worries, that is only a dummie on the trailer)
|One of the many (5) classic cars|
|The one and only mini car|
|Donkey? Miniature Donkey? |
But back to the parade...oh wait, that was the end of the parade. Back to Community Days!
After the parade, our church served lunch to the community. I've gone to Community Days for YEARS, but I had never eaten at our church's lunch. Well, this year I guess I was old enough to fend for myself when it came to lunch. My family wasn't going home for a meal, so my sister Kelli and I split a plate. AND IT WAS DELICIOUS! I had no idea what I'd been missing out on! Kelli ate the chicken and noodles, mashed potatoes, and green beans. I ate our dessert. We shared a room growing up. We've learned how to split things evenly...
This year the church dinner was a big hit. About an hour and a half after the parade was over, we ran out of food just as the line ended.
