Holly (Jr. Teen queen) and I had a fabulous time riding in style in a 2013 Ford Mustang Convertible that was just built in June! It's the same model of car which will be given away at NAM Nationals to one lucky girl. Keep the fingers crossed because I loved that car.
The grand parade was at 7pm and the weather couldn't have been any better. Once we got there (which is a whole other hour and a half long in traffic story), I was ready to get waving! Also in the parade were horses, awesome old cars, a crazy band, and a giant shopping cart. Companies, politicians, churches and lots and lots of royalty waved, walked, and threw candy along the parade route. A lot of the city royalty have their own floats they use year after year. We were right behind the Montrose royalty when half way through the parade, their music stopped. Soon I see one of the moms running around back, opening a latch, and half crawling, half jumping inside as the float was still moving. After some quick handiwork, the music started again and all was well. The mom jumped out again and ran around to the front. What would we do without pageant moms? The incident kept me laughing throughout the parade.
After grabbing some dinner at a cute family owned restaurant, my family and I were just about to head back to the car when the fireworks started! We were able to stay and watch the show which was the perfect end to the day.
