Peach Days - Let's go CRAZY!

What a BUSY Friday & Saturday I had...but it was fun, nonetheless.  This weekend was Peach Days. There is a huge parade and carnival.  It's fun for young and old.  On Friday evening, is the Kiddies Parade. (no, it's not a parade of cats!)  This is for the Elementary school kids to ride in a float or walk in the parade.  My grandson, Xavier, rode with kids from his school and had fun.

Then on Saturday morning, the BIG parade begins.  (The 3rd largest in Utah, I'm told!)  This is the first time I've been IN the parade instead of sitting on the side lines watching.  The place where I work - Dept. of Workforce Services - was in the parade handing out flyers about how to help people find jobs.  I was lucky and got to DRIVE the state vehicle.  The thing that made this fun for me was that I was jamming out to 80's music all the way! heehee  Especiall when Prince came on and sang "Let's Go Crazy"...  

After the parade I met with other local authors and had a book signing.  It was great to meet new people.

At the end of the day... I could hardly walk and I was so exhausted. But...I had fun. That's what counts, right?
