Every year in our little town we have a Bear Festival. It has been going on for about 50 years and is quite fun. This year I notices flyer's for a kiddie parade with a "Me & My Pet" category. You know the wheels started turning and I thought it would be so fun to do a parade with the goats again. So I signed all the kids up, purchased a few items for costumes, and begged my hubby to be the candy tosser.
Let me tell you, these little critters were the hit of the parade. Everyone wanted to have their picture taken with them. Even all the pretty parade queens with their big puffy dresses stopped and wanted a picture.
Addison was Hermione Granger with her "cat" Crookshanks, Logan was Captain Jack Sparrow with his little pirate girl Black Kat, and Landon was a Cowboy with a wide load pony.

This truck displayed a piece of the World Trade Center towers. The metal is going to be put on display in a town near us, and they are taking it through the parades before that. It was amazing to see something so large and strong bent like a piece of clay. Very moving.
After it was all said and done, I looked at my husband and said, "This is why we live in a small town."
