okay maybe not really really for me.
but i like to think it was.
rockwall, my alma mater,
(can u say alma mater if it's just ur high school?)
had their homecoming last week
and as tradition,
a lovely parade to build spirits,
the day before the game.
i love the homecoming parade.
i have fond memories of being in it myself.
jacket fight never dies.
not even if you move to
fort worth, tx
camp lejeune, nc
to rockwall, tx.
it's in your bloody mcbloooooooodster.
i'm being mighty sarcastic today.
just so you know.
all excited to see the fun.
my kids humor me during this time of year.
no parade is a texas parade
without a horse.
in the street.
carrying the texas flag.
and a cowboy hat with boots.
the sound of the rockwall fight song.
music to my ears.
i love you song.
i think i might download you.
just because you're that great.
my sister was a stingerette ya know?
they all grow up to be hooters girls.
did u know that?
thats why they wear those beige tights.
i always love looking at all the interesting vehicles in the parade.
let us make note, this is rockwall.
a town that i grew up in.
that used to only have:
a dairy queen.
and a movie theater.
it's freakin RESORTwall.
(thanks dena for the term)
pisses me off.
dumb hoity toity snobs walkin around like this is their city.
i need a shirt saying:
"rockwall. i was here first."
a frickin lamborghini?
are you kidding me?
i didn't think people really owned those.
they only existed on posters
with half nude women sprawled across the front of them.
in resortwall, people be ridin dem up in deese streeets.
whoa whoa whoa.
back that up.
what is up with the FCCLA dude's hair?
it's like a lego man cap.
now that i've said that,
i can almost guarantee an email in my inbox
from lego man's mother.
why my kids make gangster signs
when i tell them to look and smile?
what is that?
this picture was taken before i got the kids' haircuts.
i'm actually embarrassed that they looked so orphanly.
no offense to orphans.
i can say that because i had one.
is that i am NOT on the RHS swim team.
the dude on the far left.
you know which one i'm talkin about.
after waiting almost 40 minutes,
the football team showed up
(on their mack truck, of course *eyeroll*)
we were so excited to see the cheerleaders
following behind them.
shouting out cheers.
throwing candy to the kids.
but a lot has changed i guess.
the cheerleaders came...
and we hardly noticed them.
mrs. parrish would be so disappointed.
that was gay.
the fire truck that followed the entire parade
was enough excitement for all my kids.
penny jumped out of his chair
and waived his arms in the air.
like you just don't care.
(sorry, got carried away)
it was perfect.
looks like a trip to the fire station is in order.
but i have no pictures of him,
gus thoroughly enjoyed the ruckus of the parade.
so let's end this post on a yummy note.
nothing tastier than a baby fresh from his nap.
