About a week ago, Katie brought home her free pass to the fair this coming week. She asked me if we could go. I told her that I would rather us do something different, but fun. I have no idea what we'll do, but I'd do just about anything to avoid the county fair. I would rather us go to Six Flags than go to a county fair. She didn't fuss about not going, we'll see how it goes this week.
Today, Katie had the opportunity to go to her first fair parade in town. Doug reminded me as Katie and myself were heading out the door. I wanted to stop off at a couple of places before we went to Walmart. When we finished, I began noticing people parking and lining up the sidewalks with their chairs, umbrellas and coolers along the main strip. It wasn't even noon and the parade didn't start until 2PM. I asked Katie, if she would be interested in watching the parade. Not really knowing what to expect, she agreed, but first we needed some food in our bodies. We stopped off at our favorite sandwich place, but it was so packed that I couldn't find a table open to sit down. So, we made our way to DQ to see how crowded they were. Would you believe we found a spot by the window, exactly where the parade would be coming down the road? Jackpot! Katie ran into a couple of school friends, while we were inside the restaurant. I figured we would stay inside, because it was smoldering outside, and watch the parade make it's way down. Nope! Katie was tired of sitting. After she had to go hug "A's" neck, we were out the door looking for a spot to claim by the street. Oh my gosh! We stayed out there, watching the parade come through for well over an hour and there were still people and floats coming. At that time, Katie and I both agreed to call it quits and head for the air conditioning at Walmart. LOL! Our faces were red as beets and I have sandal marks (sunburn) on my feet.
