I love love this time of year. We have always sat on main street to watch the parade at my grandparents home even though it sold a few years ago we still make sure we put out blankets and chairs to keep the tradition going. None of my extended family comes anymore but anyone who knows me knows its still the greattest thing to me. All of my family and some of there families come, its soooo fun. My kids had lots of fun dancing around and picking up candy with all of there best little buds.
