Truckee Parade







What's the Fourth of July without an awesome parade? Well, this one was less than desirable. We were all prepared with the 20 Wall-Mart sacks we brought, hoping for the best. The poor kids probably took home 4 pieces of candy each. They have been taught very well by my 2 cute sister-in laws, and myself, "the art of obtaining optimal candy surplus at a parade event". We yell at every car that goes by. We yell a flattering sentence to them using their company name or slogan, and that puts us in favor of the sympathy candy throw-out. Well something went amiss. We haven't figured out went exactly wen wrong. It could be the plunging economy, it could be just a simple candy shortage, I mean, who knows??? Do you see Sponge Bob on the picture? Well, I still laugh thinking about it. Everyone was so excited to see Sponge Bob Square Pants coming toward us. Little Preston's eyes lit up with excitement. He rushed up to him and was nearly BOWLED over by this 2nd rate impostor. Little Preston shocked and sad eyes were immediate as he rushed to the comfort of his mother, cute Sara, who was laughing the same as I. Ahhh, good times....
