Farmer's Day Parade

We took Cohen to the local parade here in town. We went to the lighted Christmas parade earlier this year and he liked the lights, but I think he liked this one better. Cohen is getting to such a fun age where he is a lot more aware of what is going on around him.

{Eating apples and waiting for the parade to start} 

{Lots of tractors!}
{And big trucks}

His favorite part of course was seeing all the flags and he even got his own little flag. There is always lots of candy being thrown around and Cohen isn't quite old enough to go get it, but once someone else had it then he wanted it. Some of our friends were there and sat with us so they shared a few pieces with him and he begged a few pieces off an older kid sitting next to us too.

I was curious to see how he would do with all the loud horn honking and sirens that usually go on since he has always been so sensitive to noise. He cried one time and hid a few times, but did a lot better than I thought.

{Uh, dad...I'm not so sure about this}

{Snuggling after all the loud horns} 

Overall, I do think he enjoyed it. He had lots of fun pointing at things and eating his sucker. It was sprinkling on and off throughout but the rain managed to hold off. He was a huge, sticky mess by the end!


  1. That picture of he and Danny snuggling is priceless!

  2. Seriously, Cohen, the soon-to-be big brother, you are cute stuff!
