That little girl in the middle had quite the shoes and socks combo and a good healthy dose of attitude. She cracked me up. And she and her sister shared candy with the girls.
Gilbert checking it out.
The dairy princess float. For some reason, none of them are waving normally--they were all doing that princess wave thing.
This guy was pedaling for all he was worth.
This is Bernie, who we bought the farm from.
