Small Town Parade


Our small town has a parade every year to kick off the fair and the 4th of July.  Both Eli and Sophia were in the parade.  Sophia walked with the children from her dance school.  She was allowed to wear any costume that she wanted...you can see that she is a "zebra fairy".  Eli walked with his karate school.  He just loves karate class.  They even stopped and did some of their karate moves for the crowd.

I just love these photos...look at Sophia's FACE.....she is beaming. I can't get over how grown she looks in such a short time...and so confident! What a doll.

ELI is growing by leaps and bounds. Lock him up 'cause the girls are going to bang your door down!
