Today was Homecoming Day for the high school where I graduated. A parade kicked off at 1 p.m. and a line of trucks pulling decorated trailers. Each trailer is loaded with kids who throw tons of candy to other kids lined up on the parade route.

We took our great nephew Jordan. I dropped Jilda and him at her sister Pat's house which is on the route. All of her grandkids were there and they had a huge time.

I always take pictures of the people who line up to watch the parade. Today, I shot almost 300 photographs. I posted them on Facebook for the community to see.

I went to the game for a while tonight but my knees are screaming.

I'm glad Homecoming is only once a year.

This is a young lady who enjoyed the parade from the sunroof of her mother's car.


  1. She is a pretty homecoming queen in waiting.

  2. She looks too young to be queen this year, but...

  3. This is an alien concept to me. We have nothing remotely like it...

  4. She might just be the future Home Coming Queen. It sounds like great fun for the whole community. You must be the official photographer for your town.

    Hugs, Julia

      Are you your town's official photographer? You should/could be!!

  5. Parades are always fun to watch and so are people.

  6. She's quite a beauty.

  7. She is so pretty, of course homecoming isn't a thing here down under and to be honest I have no idea what homecoming is all about

  8. Parades, fun for old and young. Memories of the old and making those memories for later for the kids. We love to 'run across' a parade as we travel. Just JOY, even when you do not know a person in the parade.

    Sorry about your wheels, hope they got some relaxation, maybe some grease..

  9. I really likes your blog! You have shared the whole concept really well and very beautifully soulful read!
    Thanks for sharing
