2009 Carnival Parade

Every year midway through the week of the carnival, the Volunteers have a parade! This year, we got to walk to the parade, which was wonderful!! So, we packed up the stroller, grabbed our chairs, & headed up the street! The girls couldn't wait to see what would be in this year's parade! They loved waving to all the firefighters, police officers, girl scouts, politicians, dancers, & sports players! It wasn't as long as last year's parade, but we enjoyed it! Afterwards, we headed to Little Lou's for crab cakes & crab soup for dinner - a perfect end to the day!

Jillian enjoying a frozen Go-Gurt waiting for the festivities to begin!

Craig sat next to Jillian & when he sat down she put her little hand next to his on the arm of his chair - it was so sweet I had to capture it!

Kylie got the prime seat for the parade - on Daddy's lap!!

Baltimore County Firefighters carrying the colors to start the parade!

Hometown Heroes - the Rosedale Volunteers!

This is an antique rescue squad car - it looked like Ghostbusters!

The girls liked this one! Garfield caught a ride!

Work, Shop, Worship, Live - Rosedale, MD!!

An antique fire truck from Dundalk, MD

This was another favorite of the girls - County Council Chairman, Joe Bartenfelder drove down the route on his tractor!

The St. Clement Church Girl Scout Troop!

And the Brownie Troop!!

Kylie & Jillian loved watching them throw their batons!

Rosedale Soccer Club - we are signing Kylie up for Clinic next season, so she maybe on the float next year!!

New Edition Dancers!

Kylie & Mom-Mom trying to watch the dance routine!

Kylie just LOVED the parade & did NOT want to go home!
Only a few more days of the carnival - but I am sure we'll be headed back over before it ends! I know the girls will miss it once it's gone, but it'll be back next year!!
