Being a child of split parents made for Grandparent & Family visits that were sometimes far and few between; due to the natural flow of individual lives. There are a lot of wonderful memories and I had a great childhood, so don't get me wrong, but I honestly didn't know them as Grandparents, as well as I would have liked to. My childhood is now gone and that time is lost to us all, but I did get to spend time with them as an adult & I still see Papa when I can. So to say thank you to the memories she was able to give me, I decided to enjoy a parade in her honor. Although I didn't know her in her clown days, I do remember her as a lighthearted & funny person. I can imagine Grammy & Papa in parades & things having a great time, interacting with the crowd, loving on the kids as they passed through. So thank you Grammy for all of your love!
We had a wonderful time mingling before the parade began & the parade itself was a blast! To quote myself when posting the link for some of the photos below: "So, I had been dancing around & having fun as any steampowered time-traveling fairy would on such an occasion. I paused for a few seconds for a photographer to take a photo & the timing felt off from his click so I changed the pose and he clicked again. He thanked me with a big smile & I suddenly realized these could be great photos. I quickly pulled out my card and asked if he could send them to me. He agreed & I pirouetted myself back into the time warp. He sent over a few of me & promised that link after I asked if he had some of my friends. Pretty cool that he was so joyful in sharing these with us."
