Hometown, homegrown, Homecoming Parade

I got a little sidetracked today. My 'to do' list, in fact, went out the door when one of my daughters called to remind me that today is ISU's Homecoming (ISU is our local Idaho State University).

I immediately shifted gears for the day.

The big deal, of course, is that our three-year old granddaughter was to be in the Parade, on the float for her tumbling school. I got lots of pictures, but that's the one I missed. She was seated on the side of the float opposite to where we were standing (something we would have had no way of knowing ahead of time, unfortunately).

But today was a gorgeous, Fall day and the Parade is always fun. Below are some pics.

The color guard, followed by the ISU Marching Band, opened the Parade.

This is the Bengal's mascot, Benny.

Our niece, Jordi, is on the Highland High School cheerleading squad.

Now that the parade is over, I'm back on track for the day, although we will move dinner ahead so that we can attend tonight's Homecoming Game (kick-off at 6:35 p.m. MDT).

Fall is a special time -- football, parades, warm sun, potato soup in the crockpot and Rosemary Chicken in the oven.

See ya!

Hey everybody, be sure to click that first picture for a full-sized version!!

Cath, that is a great shot, a pretty, all-American small town with that spectacular mountain backdrop! You ought to submit it to Parade magazine "Snapshot" feature. Seriously.

Wow! Thanks! I will look into it.

I agree about the photo submission. I also thing the pic of the cheerleader should be submitted to Ford Modeling Agency...ok, so Im a little bias....

Well, maybe you're a little biased, but she's certainly growing up to be beautiful.
