Everyone Loves a Parade

On Labor Day (Sept 4), we went to the Newtown Labor Day Parade. There is also a Newtown Labor Day Road Race. Next year I plan to run.

The Labor Day Parade was great - we all had a blast. It felt like a small town parade. We had a tough time getting David to come to the parade. Rachel's great idea was for him to wear computer headphones (he is sensitive to loud parade sounds). David wore his headphones and we finally made our way to the parade site. Ya know, there were a lot of loud noises - drums, trumpets, gun fire, trucks - but David was really great. I covered his ears when I sensed a very loud sound (fireworks).

David - every day and every moment you surprise me. You make me proud to be your father.
