Hello, My Name is Ashley. And I love parades.

It is a special club
that meets around the holidays and homecomings. Unless you live in Billings....then the special club meets once a month. What haven't you ever heard of a May Day Parade and The-Dog-Licked-Himself Parade?

I LOVE PARADES. I love scoping out a spot (although, I never slept on the street to save my spot, I have had MANY friends that have done this for the 4th of July Parade in Provo). I like kicking back in my chair or the the curb and listening the the pre-parade noise. THEN it starts.....I like the bands, the floats and all the candy throwing (does anyone remember the time Natalie took out a small child while diving for a couple of tootsie rolls?). MOSTLY, I love to shout things at a parade.

"Way to GO!"

"Happy Holidays"

"You're Queen of WHAT ?!*&%"

"Does that count as a FLOAT?"

"I could have made that."

"Nice hat."

Why do people always wear dumb hats in parades? Another post.......

*no pictures of Baby Dayne. She stayed home with John and AJ. She had her shots on Saturday. And since I suck, she had to get 5 shots. (We missed her 6 month check up). It was better to leave the cry-dog at home.

oh i LOVE parades! We are going to one on Saturday in Bend, can't wait. You should definitely come up sometime for the Rose Festival Parade in the beginning of June. Nothing beats it, and you'd love it, also, the cannon beach parade on the 4th of july is another one you'd love. i am sure rich could join ryan as part of the parade.

I don't know how I missed this post.

I love parades too. It must of come from going to the "once a month parade" in Billings. I know many are very lame but hey it is fun to do all of the hollering etc.

I do remember Natalie almost taking out the little one going for the candy. You have got watch that girl.

Lastly, what is up with the long hair on Trevor? He and their babies look like the same person.
