Awesomely Explosive for Independence Day!

We all had a blast (pun intended!) at the 4th of July Parade in Fort Collins today.

We even had an official mascot this year! Thank you, Jarvis, the amazing 3 legged dog, for displaying what being Awesome in Action is all about!

On a whim, Martin joined us to add to his Marathon training workout (He’d already done the Firecracker 5K twice!)

Of course, no party is complete without this joker and her crew! We had so much fun with Kelleen, Charlie, and their kids Riley, Kira, and Aidan.

And, as always, we loved to have our dear friend, Tammy Castell, joining us to march this year!

The old crew, Alex, Thalia, and Olivia joined the parade, and they were a great help getting ready!

 Nothing says the 4th of July like a duel with cardboard tubes!

Here’s a few shots of us marching from behind! Susan took the wheel to drive the Silver Bullet down the parade route!

 

 

 

 

 

Vanessa is a hot kid after the long parade! Even so, she chose to share her Popsicle with Jarvis. Guess her mom, Amy, is teaching this (almost) youngest AiA team member some great values!
