We painted a grocery cart green, stuffed it with ferns, and made a bush for the "baby bear" to ride. Papa Bear (Grandpa Jim) pushed the cart. Mama Bear (Grandma) and Goldilocks (Daddy - such a good sport!) followed.
Alayna reeeaallly wanted to be a ballerina in the parade, but none of the rest of us were game. Alayna, dressed as a ballerina, marched in the children's parade in Calumet! That's Great Grandma Mary and Uncle Brad directly behind Alayna!
This was the first time that Alayna walked the entire parade route, almost two miles! She dressed as Little Red Riding Hood. Grandma was - who else? - the grandma. Grandpa was the woodsman and Daddy was the big bad wolf!
Yea! Uncle Brad joined us in our annual march. We all dressed as bumble bees. As always, Grandma made all the costumes (with a lot of last minute help from everyone).
Here we are on the deck of the Valley Camp ore boat at Sault Ste. Marie, MI.
This year we traveled with Alayna to Crystal Lake Campground near Lodi, Wisconsin. We had so much fun together. Brian, Pam and Brad joined us there for a while.
