After 4 months and 18 days (who's counting?), we had another event, and it was a unique event, too. We braved the heat for the shortest parade that we've ever done (definitely the least amount of walking), but still managed to deliver plenty of smiles.

We were part of 2 parades for Make-A-Wish kids. Besides us, the parade included a group on dirt bikes and quads, assorted hot rods and vintage cars, the rolling thunder of a Harley gang, police cars, and fire trucks.

After the short walk/ride of the first parade (100 yards?), we joined the convoy to the next kid's house. The directions weren't entirely clear, so some of the paraders got lost and delayed the start, but the wait was minor. We snaked through the neighborhood and got a nice welcome from the various families there.

We had a lot of teamwork for this event. Nate sharing his canopy and trailer. Zach and the Weir's sharing water. Jill loaning her car. The Weir's and Jill giving people rides. Helping each other get dressed. Looking out for each other during the parade. Zach and Jeff got some great pictures, as always. Other than the masks and staying 6 feet apart, it was almost normal. It was nice to get back to doing what we do best.
