Teddy Bear Parade

Oregon City Teddy Bear Parade
May 9, 2009

Handcarts are us . . .since the theme of the Oregon City Parade was Pioneers in honor of Oregon's 150th Anniversary, my husband Steven borrowed a handcart made by a friend. We all - Melanie Hentrom, Young Mother of the Year, and family, our daughters Alisha and Nola and their kids, and Alisha's husband - donned pioneer attire and we were set!

Melanie's husband Will and my son-in-law Steven were great sports about pulling us in the handcart. This was our first parade and we had a lot of fun!

We even won the theme award for the parade - that was a big surprise, but I think the handcart was the secret to our success!

Kids and grandkids, grown and young were wonderful support, carrying banners and handing out candy. The weather was beautiful for most of the parade.

Melanie and I plan to be in more parades during the year!
