I mentioned before that my little town has the biggest Veteran's Day parade in the state of Kansas. We're pretty proud of that! The parade took a whopping 2 1/2 hours!
Now I'm not gonna say it's the most exciting parade, but it's definitely the biggest! :-)
At 11 o'clock the parade stops and the horns play TAPS and we're always impressed by the kick butt jets that do a fly-over.
This year the fly-over was about 2 minutes late so it really surprised us all and of course I wasn't able to get a picture... which makes me sad cause that's just about my favorite part of the parade!
(besides the horses of course!)
|poor Riley cried through pretty much the entire parade. First he was afraid of all the sirens, and then he was just crying to cry I guess?|
|notice the soldiers boots on the saddle.... the horse who returned without his soldier. Always gives me goosebumps|
|this person standing right infront of me was a Vet. It was pretty cool because all through out the parade soldiers were stepping out and coming over to shake his hand. I sure do love this country.|
|this is my high school.... I used to be one of those band members! :)|
|my dad used to fly these when he was in the Army|
|we even got a fire engine straight from NY!|
|WWII Vets If my grandpa were alive he'd be in that group, he retired from the Army as a General|
|my dad, Retired LTC, and the kids|
|and how fun is this guy?! I just love it!|
