July 4th Parade: Post 1

For the last four years, Claire has never wanted to miss the July 4th festivities in Mountville, including the delightful parade featuring all the local kids riding their decorated bikes and four wheelers. Mr. Morgan and I didn't attend last year's parade because little Hamilton was on the way, so we were happy to be celebrating in Mountville style again this year. Because I have so many great pictures, I'll divide the parade coverage into several posts.

Hamilton, dressed in his festive outfit that his Mimi made for him, sat with Ms. Gerry as soon as we arrived at the July 4th celebration. Hamilton seems to like everyone and will let anyone hold him, but he usually doesn't sit for long in anyone's lap now that he can crawl.With over 50 grandchildren and great-grandchildren, Ms. Gerry has been holding many children for three generations. Obviously, her lap is mighty comfy with a well-worn feel that Hamilton likes.
