4th of July Parade VIDEO!

video

Justin was asked if he would like to be on the "float" for CATT (Construction Association of Truckee-Tahoe) in the parade, and Justin was excited to do so! We tried to get some video of him this morning; he had a blast and it was so much fun to see him in the parade!

4th of July Parade Pictures!

Today John, Dyan, Jacob and I went to the 4th of July Parade in town, not only to go, but to see Jus' parade debut! CATT asked him if he'd like to be on their "float" and he did it! Here are some shots of some of the things we saw!

Having fun with the Life Flight Helicopter....


Walking with Daddy! He is getting used to walking with shoes....and pavement!








This man was with a Chimney Sweep Company!

Dyan and I.

Jacob wasn't too happy being on John's shoulders, but he looks happy here!



Smokey the Bear!

We had Fire Departments not only from our town of Truckee, but Squaw Valley and Northstar.

This was an old fire truck that was spraying water! It looks like you are about to get nailed with a ton of water, but it just kind of dispersed into a mist. It was cool!

What is a Truckee Parade without an "army" of marching skiiers carrying their skiis?

Lots of local companies had floats!

Lots of old cars and trucks too!

Happy Birthday U.S.A.!!!

This is actually an ambulance leaving the fire department...our spot was right in front of the fire department and they had to get us to make a path so they could leave...they got a call!


A jail on wheels!!!

While downtown we ran into Bob and Linda. We were at the "starting line" while they were at the "finish line". When we went to the finish line to get Justin, that is where we bumped into them...and a nice lady and her horse!

Jacob WALKS!!!!!!

video

Jacob has walked a step here or there, but that is about it. Today, with his brother using his remote control car as bait, Jacob totally walked! We're in trouble now!!!!!

It's Been a Busy Week!

Sunday we went to our favorite Mexican restaurant, Casa Baeza, for dinner. Jacob loves his beans!

Mmmmm!
He decided to try and see what it was like being our cat, Shyla.
Meow.....
John finished the gate yesterday as well. He's been working so hard on getting the fence and gates done!

We couldn't resist getting some video of Jacob eating his beans at Casa!
