Late Sunday we decided to take a break from the vacation work and go visit my mother. She lives in Dawn. From the photo you can notice it is such a small town it does not warrant a population sign. While in Dawn we do things for fun we can't do in the city.
We also attended a small town homecoming. This small town happened to be the town of Wheeling. My mother is a sucker for a baby show. This year she had two granddaughters to enter into the show.
|So here is the Short Chic on the far left. She took 2nd. The little girl on the far right took First. And the girl in the cowboy boots second to the right took third. The little girl who won first was a hometown girl.|
|The entire stage.|

|Here is Miss Short Chic after the contest. She is showing off her Toddlers and Tiara's stance!|
|This years theme was the 10th Anniversary of 9/11. It was a very nice parade. They started it off as most small town parades start off, with the Star Spangled Banner, The presentation of the flags, and honoring our local Veterans.|
|The Short Chic got to meet the clown. We have not met too many clowns in our short life and I was proud of her because she was not scared at all!|
|A pretty smile and a wave increases your likelihood of getting candy!|
We had lots of down time to play on the school-yard type equipment. Some of it we had never seen before. They had a giant piece of plastic drainage pipe the kids could roll around in. Everyone thought that was amazing! Then they had this old metal swing type piece of equipment. The Boy found it fun!
