Another year gone by, and it was time for the annual Multnomah Days parade again! This year, I gave Jake the option of watching the parade from the sidelines as we have always done, or participating by walking with the Foothills Soccer Club, which he just joined this year. Jake wanted to be in the parade!
He and I left early and walked to the beginning of the parade to wait with a group of soccer players of all ages. Unfortunately, we didn't know anyone, but the excitement of being able to throw candy to the kids watching the parade was an opportunity Jake did not want to pass up.
