Yay for Black and White Days! This is Richmond's big event every year and the kids had a blast! The whole thing actually starts mid-week with the cattle shows and sales (hence the black and white), but then on Saturday the horses take over and a whole slew of family activities abound. Okay, so we didn't participate in the hay bale throwing, cow pie eating contest, milking contest, and such; but we did have Marina and Jessica participate in the jumprope shows, not to mention taking advantage of train rides, food, etc. And, of course, in the evening came the parade.
Here's the Richmond float, complete with L'il Miss and Dairy Princess and attendants.
Not to mention the jumprope club doing their thing.
I scrambled about like any kid for candy since I promised Marina and Jessica I'd get them some, and Serene even had a blast . . . especially when Dad fed her part of a Twinkie he caught!
