2009 Fireman's Festival

Every year our very small community celebrates the Fireman's Festival. We decided to put together a parade entry...Dr. Hubby shined up his mistress...I mean his Ford F250 Superduty...

Wild Child and I rode in the back with beach towels, a beach umbrella, and a sand bucket full of candy to throw...

Manga Dork and Cutie Patootie rode on the jet ski armed with their own sandbucket of candy. Don't ya think the theme was clever?!...Dr. Hubby's office sign was on the front of his truck...

We even won a plaque...we were the best float in the parade!...we were the only float in the parade...we were the best float in the parade!

I love small town activities!

The 2 little ones got to dunk the girl in the tank...

and everyone tried to knock down the bottles...

Wild Child lived up to her name AGAIN...we were talking to some friends and looked over by the slide and she had her pants pulled down PEEING! I could have dug a hole...we pretended she didn't belong to us...

Meanwhile Cutie licked on some of the yummiest pizza ever served in a fire dept.
We {heart} our firemen!

How fun! We were in a small town for the 4th, and it made me realize how much I love them. I grew up in a small town, and wouldn't want to live there, but I love going to festivals and trying out all the fun local food places.

I love anyone who whoes love to Firemen! =) My Brother is a Volunteer Fireman and also Army REserve. And He became a Fireman because of the Firemen who saved the rest of the Fam lives after an explosion that completely obliterated the house while they were sleeping. He wasnt home... Im so proud of him and greatfull to all the Men who Pulled My family from the wreckage! Amazing they all survived! .... Any way! Stopping by from SITS!! Thanks for entering my giveaway! Good Luck!

Looks like lots of fun! Though I must admit to having a good chuckle at you guys throwing candy from a float that says "Ride the wave of good health". I'm just teasing you a little- what good is a float if no one flings candy from it?
