Parade.........

Friday night we grabbed a blanket, some chairs, popcorn and snacks and headed to a night of movies on the beach(our last night at NPD). Every Fri. and Sat. nights during the summer Newport Dunes offers this. The kids loved it. If you haven't camped or been to NPD, I highly recommend it. It's a great family place. They have lots of activities.


Then Saturday was moving day. After spending two months of living at the beach we said our goodbyes to our friends we have made. Exchanged emails (so we can keep in touch on facebook) honked our loud horn and pulled out...
We feel like we already had summer and it's only the beginning of June. It was so much fun living at Newport Dunes! We will miss it, but it's time to move on and get ready to hit the road again. Daddy's been busy working and has a few more jobs to finish before we can leave. We are hoping he gets done this week, if not early next week. In the meantime we are getting dentist appts, ortho appts and doctor appts taken care of....fun, fun!

But first, we ended our beach living with the Balboa Parade.....





Balboa Island needed Golden Retrievers. So Maggie Mae was one of the 75 Golden Retrievers in the parade.

But the best part of the parade wasn't the Patio Chair Drill Team ha!..........






hey, there's something for everyone I guess haha!............





it wasn't the bicycle safety team..........


and it wasn't even this Hula man............


or the big Gorilla.......


In my opinion this little one stole the show!

With her tutu, pink boots and parade wave:)


I'm afraid she took away some of the attention from the 75 Golden's walking along side her....


The crowed loved her.......






and she loved all the attention.........







There was all different colored goldens even this pretty white one........




I just walked behind all the kids and of course took pictures.........I did wave a couple times too:)









Faith was in heaven with all the goldens.......she made Maggie this scarf for the big day.










The boys showed off their rode jackets while riding their motorcycle sounding bikes (hence the can on the tire)









they stopped to wave a couple times too........









The Ryan parade:)

I"ll leave you with a few more pictures of us at the parade....enjoy!





























































See you tomorrow!

What fun!!!

We will have to check out Newport Dunes. We're planning a CA camping trip for August (on our way to Texas).

One of my sons is moving to Santa Barbara for the summer, so we need to go visit. Another son is living in TX ... thus, our intended destination.
