So we traveled to H's hometown for the big 10 year reunion and town festival. We had to make a stop along the way to see this though:
(H reenacting a scene from Harvey Birdman, Attorney at Law.)
We made it to town and played with all the nieces and nephews and hung out with H's parents and siblings. Then we went to the two-hour parade. Yes, you read that correctly. TWO HOURS. Some highlights:
I decided to be in a positive and non-snobby mood, so I didn't take any pictures of mullets or men wearing tight-rolled jean shorts. But I did take a picture of this hood ornament:
H seemed to have a really good time. I met several women from H's class, and they were all really nice and normal. It was fun! Especially once I started drinking! I actually met a girl from my hometown who went to my high school's biggest rival high school. It was very exciting for us because we were both drunk. I chatted excessively with some people, as I am known to do when totally wasted, and I took lots of pictures of H and my new best friends.
A warning for those who decide to try this at home: 2 hour parade + lots of alcohol + sinus headache + little sleep + in-laws deciding to have tons of family over at their house the next morning to celebrate 2 of the nephews' birthdays = rude daughter-in-law who sleeps through most of the day and shows up unshowered and barely talks to anyone at the party. The kids didn't care though because we got them kick-ass presents. Best aunt ever!!!!
