Texas Family Camp Bicycle Parade!

While we were at Family Camp, we were part of the 1st Annual Kid's Bicycle Parade! It was so much fun to see all the children decorate their bicycles in red, white, and blue and then have a great time actually being the parade for their parents and siblings! The convention center was a hub of excitement, where everybody was given balloons and streamers to decorate their bikes, trikes, scooters, and whatever else they rode on!

 Tuning up while we were waiting for the parade to start... The four "mobile" ones of us played fiddle tunes while we walked, so OF COURSE we had to decorate our instruments too! :) 

ALERT Color Guard! (ALERT stands for Air Land Emergency Resource Team) The family camp is held at their base and training center.

The parade just beginning - it's turning out onto the road from behind the convention center.

The Grand Marshall of the parade was Lew Sterrett of "Sermon on the Mount" Ministries and Ransom Wind Ranch.

Some of our friends from the El Ricoh play were part of the parade!

Here they all come!

The diving team float passing us - as we neared the end of the parade route, we joined the rest of our group performing on a hay wagon next to the parade announcer.

Yankee Doodle went to town
A-riding on a pony
He stuck a feather in his hat
And called it macaroni!
