To catch up on the history and events leading up to Liberation Day
Read this story
and this one
I had big plans and high hopes for Liberation Day -
but, we all slept in too late to get through the Parade Route before the roads closed.
I am a mom -
and I have a plan B.
We drove "the back way" around the parade route, and ended up at the end of it.
We found a parking place about 2 blocks from the end of the parade -
and headed out with beach towels to sit on, sunscreen and water.
We only missed a couple of things at the beginning of the parade.
|Zion and his buddy Jonah, scrambling for candy!|
|Cool cars were a big hit with the boys|
|and the military, of course!|
and we didn't make it to the end of the parade
It's a BIG parade!
Around noon, the boys were tired and hungry.
Since we were at the end of the parade,
some of the floats had run out of candy -
which didn't help motivate them to stay longer.
But it was a good day!
Happy Liberation Day Guam!
