The next activity after the 5k is the parade. My father-in-law is the fire chief so I was very excited to hear that I could participate in the parade (no walking required). I was given the option of riding in the fire chief car (who can really see you in there?) and riding on one of the fire trucks. No contest there!
I was telling everyone that I was participating because of Judah - so I could tell him he rode in a fire truck in the parade. (I do blame him for it being such a tight squeeze to get me on the truck). But once I got up there, tossing beads and candy, it was on. All I was missing was a paegant wave and a tiara!
