lined the parade route, including
our friends Dan and Nancy. Yes,
that IS Nancy and I with our 4th
headgear. A tradition. Later that
day, we enjoyed grilled burgers
and other yummies at Dan and
Nancy's house. We passed on
the fireworks due to the heat.
All Star game and Fanfest took
place several days before the
