We cut ‘coins’ out of cardboard, glued them on and painted them gold. We glued on crowns and jewels and swirled glitter glue around to add extra sparkle….
This is the dog-sized horse blanket which is our dog’s rain coat, that we attached this whole dealie to….
The unsuspecting victim….
And she’s sooo thrilled about it, heheh.
But, it worked!! The walk just to the end of our subdivision to line up was awful – Kiki was excited but nervous, (so she was a bit on the snotty and freaked out side) Merry didn’t want to walk nice on the leash… we’d lost one set of coins and a crown before the parade even started…. but! Once she got to start walking, Merry was such a good girl! She just stepped out lively with her head held high. I walked the route with them, just off to the edge, and I heard lots of nice comments about the "pirates and their treasure chest", lol. All in all, I guess I have to say it was worth the effort.
Waiting to line up –
Lined up –
and off we go!!
Oh, yeah, this is one of the great things about living in Small Town, USA. Not every kid gets to be in a parade!
Like I said, it was a beautiful day.
