Prep for a Parade

This coming weekend is our town’s local Parade of Lights.  It’s a festive time on Main Street and a great family event.  For the last few years we have entered a float.

Float building is a group effort, managed by Co-Leader H.  Troop leaders, their daughters and some super-hubbies all take part.  We took the building of the float inside the barn this year, to try to keep warm!

The dads piece together our base.  We have used the same basic construction year to year, to save on the cost.  We have tried every which way to label the pieces to make it easier to put back together each time but it is always a gigantic puzzle!

This is what our kids are doing while they wait for their turn! 🙂

In true Girl Scout fashion, the girls are “Using Resources Wisely”  for the building of this float.
