Happy Independence Day everyone! (240 awesome years and counting….)
I am just back from my Cub Scout Pack 439 Cubmaster duties. First, we marched with Troop 439 at the front of the Independence Day parade in Byers, Colorado. (I am so proud of our boys!) Second, we met up at Lions Park in Strasburg, ate lunch, and then watched a Cub Scout/Boy Scout/visitors water fight that moved from water balloons to squeezing water bottles at each other. 🙂
The parade had all the usual…floats…old cars…politicians…emergency vehicles…and since we are in cowboy/cowgirl country…horses…and one goat. 🙂
Now, I should note that I had to march in the parade, so I tried to snap photos of everything ahead of time. However, since we were at the front of the parade, I was able to take a bunch of pictures walking back to the car. Before sharing those images, however, here are four videos…starting off with the 2016 Dust Devils doing a little dancing:
Their float also has this cool fake shotgun action:
The parade route was blessed with a passing train:
Okay, I’ll admit it. There wasn’t much to that train. I just love trains. 🙂
Finally, you can never have too many emergency vehicles: 🙂
Now that you’ve seen all the videos…how about a whole bunch of pictures?
Well, there you go. I don’t know about the rest of you, but I think I’ll spend the rest of this holiday away from the computer and close to family!
