I’ve been a complete failure lately at getting the kids out for activities. It had been so long since we had attended our local Veteran’s Day parade. This morning I decided that today was the day. I was actually going to be a “fun mom” and drive downtown to watch the parade. And we did. Yay for me. [ha!]
My absolute favorite moment was the fighter jet flyover. Incredible. I almost started crying.
And who can forget the bagpipes?!
And the military and school bands. (Shout-out to my alma mater, North Albany Middle School, for their stellar parade corner. I remember all those practices to get it just right, lo, all those years ago.)
And the horses, of course.
When Search and Rescue marched by, I nudged Luke. I think he’d be great at it!
I am also remembering my favorite WWII veteran today. We miss you, Grandpa.
