was a fun and friendly neighborhood
even in Providence Village!
(a neighborhood/town near Aubrey, Tx - where my daughter lives)
This sheriff lead the parade.
He was followed by kids on bikes
and scooters - and they were followed
by the local boy scouts
who carried the flags.
There were lots of golf carts.
Because in Providence, a golf cart is
nice to have. It can take you to the pool
and back or to one of the many
parks, ponds or the lake.
But - my favorite attraction was this train!
If you're RICH, you can go here
to buy one!
I looked into it. But - storage would
be an issue and they are
way too expensive!
But - when we went to get a closer
look the engineer offered us a ride.
The girls loved it!
I rode in the train car in front of them
so I could take pictures and that
is Heather in the van behind,
following along to pick us up!
We had a great time at the parade.
The girls picked up candy and filled
their backpacks half full,
and Heather, Dustin and I all got
new t-shirts that were thrown out of
vehicles by the neighborhood association!
This neighborhood is sort of
like a resort. It makes visiting the
kids feel like a vacation.
Especially in the summer when the
pools and water park is open.
