Small Town, Big Heart (part 2)

The Final Day
Saturday. There was no sleeping in for us.  We were up early to compete in the 5k race.
(When I say we, I mean these four.  I sat this one out. Although I did wake up and 'run' #1 to work at 6:15 am- so totally counts.)
 After the race, our family enjoyed a big hearty breakfast courtesy of the city.
Pancakes, eggs, ham, and chocolate milk!
 Breakfast of Champions right there!
 After breakfast it was time Parade-Time.
(Look how long and big #3's legs are!  That's what a Breakfast of Champions can do for you!  Okay, just kidding.  It's the camera.  It has distortion issues.)
 I love this small town parade.  It consists pretty much of the local high school's marching band, the city's Royalty, and the student body council riding along the parade route in the back of a pickup truck. 
And of course the local businesses parade by in decorated trailers throwing out candy, t-shirts, popsicles, and frisbees to the excited children along the way.
It's like Halloween- only nice and warm AND the candy comes to you instead of you to the candy. SCORE!!!!
(Wait!  Did that even make any sense?)
