Hip, hip hooray! We're done with the parade!

The parade is finally over. I can't tell you how happy I am. Everything went well. We only had 9 kids from our ward. 1/3 of them were my own. We had Tyler, Cameron, Avery, Zach & Hannah Cox, Joshua Banks, Sammy Deyoung & Ryan and Tanner Fellows. I'm sad more didn't try to come. Everyone really missed out because it really was quite a lot of fun. It was a short and easy walk and it seemed like it was over in just a couple of minutes. It was the perfect length for small kids. The Days of '47 organizers had a carnival for the kids and their families at the City/County building, which is where the parade ended. It was hot, but we were brave and nice parents and let the kids play there for a while. When we decided to go, we walked over to the city library because the kids had never been there. They rode the glass elevator up to the rooftop garden and looked out at the city. They were all very impressed by the place.

I really am glad that I had the opportunity to participate in the construction of the float, but I wouldn't want to have to do it again. I'm also glad that my children had the opportunity to participate in the parade. I think it's something that they will always remember.

Sounds like you all had fun and your hard work paid off. Jillene posted a pic of the float, it was beautiful! Sometimes our callings stretch us, but when it's all over, it's a great feeling of accomplishment!

I think your float turned out really cool as well! I saw the finished product on Jillene's blog, it really looked great. I bet you are glad that it is over, I know you put a lot of work into it.

The float turned out to be so cute. It has been amazing to watch the progress you guys have made each week. You put alot of time into getting it done. I'm glad it is finished and you don't have to stress about it anymore.

You really did do an amazing job!! I am glad that my kids had the opportunity to be in the parade. They loved every minute of it (especially Zach since he is a natural born entertainer)! (0: Thanks for all of your hard work and dedication! You are such a great Primary President!!

I echo the sentiments...thanks for all the time you and everyone else put into getting the float ready (sorry again, that we're flaky slackers!). It was really cute and my kids had a great time (after I forced them to go :0))

The float was great. I just want to thank you and your side kick for putting it all together. Joshua had a great time. I got a picture of him that turned out great. My sister was here and she was not to happy about getting up to go, but she did it any way. So thank you and tell your side kick thank you all so.
