Double Decker Bus in the Parade

For those of you who are new to my blog,
this is the Double Decker Espresso Bus!
It's a mobile coffee shop, that our friends own.

Today we "caught" the bus, to be in the 
Parade America,
honoring ALL who have served our nation.
This is Nampa's 52nd year of celebrating.

The owners:
Driver Dustin and hostess Angie

First, we lined up in the staging area.
Our son-in-law, Mark is explaining 
to our grandchildren, Silas and Ila May,
what they are looking at.

Isaac wasn't to sure about the loud music.

Thousands of candy pieces were ready to be handed out.

Lulu, Silas and Ila May have their pails 
full of candy, and headed out the door.

The bus was serving coffee for us.
Looks like Kimmy and Nathan are ready.

This is the view from the door.
looking down the street.

Here I am, walking beside the bus to
 make sure that kids didn't run 
in front of this huge bus.

The bus came all the way from England.
 So, the driver's
seat is on the other side.

Papa Tom and Nathan rode
on the top of the bus.
This is the coffee shop area.

Hi !! up there!

Mark and Kimmy did a great job
waving to the crowd.
Isaac is now a pro at this waving stuff, too.

View from up top during the parade.

This picture is a snap shot from the TV station
that televised the parade.
There were thousands and thousands of people!

End of the line!
Parade is over,
Someone is tired.
Hey Silas, me too!


"Let the word of Christ richly dwell in you, with all wisdom, teaching, admonishing one another with psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing with thankfulness in your hearts to God,"
