Every year our community put on the Annual Red Poppy Festival. Our family has enjoyed this event and look forward to it every year. The parade is fun and seems to get a little bit longer each time. I as a mother enjoy the process of getting my family ready to enjoy the day in the sun. We pack up and go find our front and center spots along main street as we answer questions from our little boys over and over "When is the parade going to start?". Once it starts they are mezmorized by the floats, dogs, horses, bands and clowns dance and march in front of us. Scrambling for candy makes it worth it too. This year was extra fun as we got to dress our little Poppy up and let her enjoy socializing too. My neighbor Elizabeth, who takes a lot of our family photos joined us for this day. Baby Bell is expected this September.
