There is a festival/celebration every year around the same time as Lily's show for dance. Last year I wasn't able to go because I had her dress rehearsal to be at, this year Joe wasn't able to go because he was doing a wedding rehearsal.
I loaded up all the kids and after much finagling managed to get to our friends house just off the parade route. They live on a dead end street and there is no way to get to their home without driving on the parade route so it was crazy getting there.
We made it, grabbed some quick sandwiches and loaded all the kids up on the trailer to throw candy. It was so warm. The kids all had a blast launching handfuls of candy at people. I am fairly sure that they will institute a no throwing candy policy because of us for next year.
