High School Reunion

We celebrated our 10 year high school reunion with friends last weekend. It was a lot of fun catching up with our fellow classmates. I am more than glad to have it over after over a year of planning. The weekend was celebrated "Southern" style with a parade, pep rally, football game, and party. I love the fact that we grew up in a small town that still has parades with floats and girls in big dresses waving at crowds throwing candy. (a side note: apparently there is now a city ordinance prohibiting any candy be thrown from a moving vehicle or parade float so now people hire out small children to walk along their cars/floats and gently toss candy to the crowds...we took our chances and threw from the float). Oh, on the candy, Bo collected quite a few suckers which he has carried around all week EVERYWHERE! He takes the suckers out and places them on our dinner plates as he helps me cook at night but gathers them back up and puts them back in his bucket. It has been very comical to watch him with his little treasures. He hasn't had much interest in actually eating the treats as much as just holding them.

Mary Susan's first parade ride (maybe her last unless we move back to Dalton)
