25: So many pictures and just not enough room to put them all! It was a beautiful weekend and we all had a wonderful time!
26: The planning for the float and t-shirts was a process.. It all began around March with a series of emails.. The color of the t-shirts was chosen to go along with the float theme! The t-shirts were designed by Lori and several people chipped in to get the float decorated. Landon and Brian built the tiki bar and cut out the surf board. Everyone had fun throwing candy, and handing out leis and tattoos. We even might have had a couple tropical drinks along the parade route....but that is why we ultimately went with the Hawaiian theme!
