Celebrating Nevada!

27 10 2012

This morning I had the great honor of extending one of our family traditions by taking my kiddos to the Nevada Day Parade.  This year’s theme was, “Honoring Our Military & Families, Past, Present, Future”.

We started our morning at 8:00am with the Annual Balloon Launch.

Around 10:00am we were able to see the “flyover of the military aircraft from the Fallon Naval Air Station and the Nevada Air Guard”.

Soon after we were greeted by an abundance of floats including a variety of local business, politicians, school marching bands, and local community organizations.

Some of our family’s favorite entries included,

The UNR Marching Band

Support for our Troops…


and Burning Man

We enjoyed watching the 200 participants walk, trot, bike, and drive by while we waved, ate, and just enjoyed our great State of Nevada with awesome friends and family.  I sat back and just enjoyed watching my kids marvel at all the sights and sounds that the parade had to offer both the younger and older generations.

This is what being a mom is all about, building those long lasting family memories with the ones you love so much!!
