In hopes of helping to create some fun memories for the little ones, we decided to be a little overzealous for last weekend's Freedom Festival Children's Parade (it runs down Center Street in Provo; any kids and their families are invited to participate). We planned for several weeks (OK, this was all Rachel's doing), and eventually decided on doing a NASA space shuttle. So, we borrowed a red wagon and got to work.We spent two nights until some after bed-time hours trying to figure out how to make it work. Rachel made cool hats, shakers and capes to make things a little more festive. It was a lot of work, but I think our kids loved it!
We even made a little smoke compartment with a dish of bubbling dry ice for a little take-off effect. That worked for like 7 minutes.We were even lucky to get one of what was probably several trophies recognizing those people who were weird enough to spend lots of time decorating an entry.
Mr. Linky is back!
