Veteran's Day for us isn't really a celebration as it is more of a day to reflect on people and the ones that have given it all for us to have what we have today in America. One of the great things we love to do is to head over to the neighboring town of Albany and watch the Veteran's Day parade. With Skylar being active in Karate, he is always part of the parade. We spent the night before the parade stapling and taping small pieces of candy to flyers for the Black Belt School, so the kids can pass them out to spectators watching the festivities.
We finished with over 12,000 pieces of candy! Whew!
Here's a bit of a recap of the Veteran's Day Parade in Albany, Oregon.
Skylar with his karate class came marching through shortly after the fire engines made their appearance. He said he loved being right behind the vintage fire engines.
