My Kid in Parades

This is from the Memorial Day parade in Ridgway. As usual, my son is being different, he's marching with the High School Marching Band while wearing his Boy Scout uniform. He was to do a reading for the for the Scouts and his band director granted him permission to wear the BSA uniform instead of his band uniform so he wouldn't have to change back and forth. This parade is small, reflecting the true small-town atmosphere. These are their regular Marching Band uniforms...they are nice and warm for football season! The kids just about melt in them for summer performances. Hence, the *summer* uniforms in the picture below.

This picture was taken today, at the Fireman's Parade. Usually this parade is held late in August on the Saturday of the Fireman's Carnival. Due to some scheduling problems, the carnival was held this was the parade! Billy is playing his quads (he's the second in from the left). This is where the parade turns to go down another is virtually impossible to get a good pic without a telephoto lens. This was the best picture, showing most of the band. These are their new summer uniforms, a polo embroidered with the school's marching band logo...and black shorts. We were joking around about the uniforms while watching them march today... Today's high temp was 62 degrees...for Memorial Day it was in the low 90's! Yup, got the uniforms a little mixed up! But...that just goes to show you how weird our weather truly is!

Next weekend is a parade in a neighboring town...I think I'll take my 35mm and get the pics on a disk from Walmart...we'll get some close ups of the kids and the band director! :)

I think Billy just wanted to stand out from the crowd, hehehehe, just kidding, he looks so serious playing!
This weather is wacky everywhere, I swear, we'll probably be putting the heat on until August!
