This is the first year in ages that I've missed that after-party in Goar Park. I was home packing for our trip. Robert & the girls went and I have some funny pics of BabyGirl I'm going to post. At one point she got so tired of waiting for the parade to reach her that she went and lay down in the middle of the street.
