This is one of the quilts Cindy has been working on.
|All the kids had bags.|
There were lots of the people in the parade throwing candy for the kids (and grampas) and the kids had come with bags to put it in. It seemed better than Halloween for them.
It seemed like every business in Kenai had a vehicle in the float, as well as a lot of old cars and tractors. The parade lasted about an hour and one half.
|Here the kids are picking up candy.|
When the parade was over, all the power in Kenai was off and there was a lot of traffic getting out of town. We had a good time watching the parade, although it was different than any parade we had ever seen before.
We had been invited to a barbeque this afternoon. It was close to town, but was out in the woods. The people that lived there had about a six foot fence around their property to keep the moose from ruining their plants.
It was about 2:00 in the afternoon and we had to have our heavy coats on, and everyone stood around a campfire to try to stay warm. Life here is sure different that at home where it is pushing 100 degrees. This is the first time I remember having to wear a winter coat on the fourth of July.
We are enjoying our time in Alaska, and hope the rest of the trip is as enjoyable as it has been so far.
Thanks for visiting.
