    Last weekend was nothing short of a blast.  It all started with our small town’s parade, and there was nothing small about it.  The streets were lined with people.  There were floats, kids, candy, and of course a LOT of patriotic spirit being shown.

 

IMG_1803These 2 were the grand marshals of the parade.  He’s a World War II vet and his wife is a long time member of the American Legion Auxiliary.  They are also my grandparents and just celebrated their 65th wedding anniversary.  Aren’t they adorable?  :)

IMG_1801Big Sky Pro Rodeo Queen, Lindsay Garpestad, was with us for the day.  I was so impressed with this young lady.

IMG_1867We even had animal extraordinaire Jack Hanna and his lovely wife Sue in our parade.  Jack shared with me that he only does two parades each year, the Rose Bowl Parade, and the Augusta, MT Rodeo Parade.  How cool is that?!

Rodeo action then got started on Sunday afternoon, and the competitors put on quite a show.

As I mentioned in the last post, this event has really turned into a family affair.  Here are some of my favorites.
