This year I took Brooklynn to the parade with my sister Terra. Ryan hates going places are are super crowded, so he was glad he had plans to go Mountain biking. (which it wasn't bad, we had a great spot right in the front on the street) We had a lot of fun, the night before I was all excited and told Brooklynn tomorrow we are going to a parade. She looked at me and said, "What's a parade?" I told her there are floats and clowns. Again she said "What's a clown?" So I explained that a clown is like what is on the show Jojo's circus. She then got really excited and told us "I'm gonna see a lion." (Jojo has a pet lion) Poor Berkie didn't see the lion. Once we got to the parade Brooklynn was still confused and waiting for the Clowns and lion. Once the parade starting really going she enjoyed herself. She loved the floats and some floats that she really liked was one with the Pirates, puppies and princesses, she also enjoyed the two clowns but they went by really fast. For me the best moment was I was looking at Brooklynn and she was looking up smiling and pointing at a car driving by. All of the sudden I look up and realize that President Monson was looking at Brooklynn and pointing at her also. I freaked out and grabbed my camera. Berkie stayed with Terra and I ran up ahead and was able to get a few pictures. I wish I got a better shot though. I told Brooklynn that was the prophet but she still recognizes Pres. Hinkley as the prophet, she will learn though. So overall we had a good time. Then we came home and we were pooped, so was Ryan especially in two days he road biked like 30 something miles and then mountain biked. It took us all day and we still didn't want to do anything else. So we got dinner and then we went on a walk behind our house. We were hoping to see some deer but no luck, they were all probably hiding from the fireworks. Then we had popcycles and went to bed. Kinda boring but we still had a fun day.
