Pioneer day

Just a quick post to share the pictures from todays parade and say how proud i am to have been able be a part of it. Our float won the Grand Marshall award (1st) out of 122 entries. This is Ethan.

This is the commitee that put it together: Trent, Sherrie, Me, Eddie, Chris and Casey All the kids that rode on the float - my 2 boys have the black hats on. Thats my big honkin 4ft layout that says memories - the picture is a school picture of my Great grandpa.
The Heritage layout in the front is of my GREAT GREAT grandfather, the other picture you can't see is of him in a buggy and carriage on his mission
all the kiddos in the wagon
front angle - that 2ft layout with the tree was my favorite - the picture is my great grandma and her brother when she was a toddler
me and the boys
back angle
the whole thing - if you can't tell - the wagon is inteded to look like its coming out of the history book.
so thats it - all the stress was definatley worth it. But i'm sure glad its over. Thanks for peeking. Have a good weekend!

Wow, that was quite a float. Sorry I missed it. I'm glad I got to see your layouts in person. Photos don't always do justice. They were great.
