I took the girls to the parade today....was nice to be out with just the 'bigs' since the Griz went home with Grammie since it was so blasted hot today. And I was hatching a devious plot.....
This is a traffic camera:
This is what he could see.
And I knew that Big Sarge knew about it because he told me that he watched it to check the weather where we are and when he gets homesick! And if you know me, you will know that I would never know a thing about traffic cams if it weren't for the Big Sarge....
I emailed Big Sarge and mentioned that it would be cool if he got online when the parade was going on so we could watch it together. Not exactly why PennDot put that camera there, but might as well use it for something good.
We got to Baltimore Street about 1:30 and picked out spots right next to the tent they set up for the wounded warriors (which was totally cool in itself since I got a chance to speak with a few of the wives and children.......awesome).
We busted out our sign:
And then ice cream at the Sunset:
|The Ladybug downs some cheesecake swirl.|
|Firecracker opts for watermelon.|
And Mama let everyone stay up late to watch How To Train Your Dragon (cute, but a disappointment after reading the book).
A good, small-town kind of day......but, true freedom will never come from anything on this earth but only comes from the Lord of Heaven and Earth - the risen and reigning Jesus Christ.
Pray for our men and women in harm's way, away from home, training and serving wherever they are. Pray for their families - their husbands, wives, parents and children. Pray for those who mourn the loss of their soldiers. Pray for the injured to heal. Pray for peace. Pray. Pray. Pray.
