Progress Days Parade!
So last weekend was Soldotna's Prgress Days, which makes for a very busy tourist weekend, and this year was no exception. Except for this year the "red salmon" run came in that week, and so instead of maybe 5000 fish running up the river there was 400,000 fish running up the river in a day. Because of this "running of the reds" we went from having 10,000 people in town to having 20-30,000 in town!!! The streets were overflowing with people and cars and it was downright insane! Our family tries to avoid going to town when such events occur, just because it really is not very much fun. However my friend asked if we wanted to go to the parade, and since the kids are of the age to enjoy such things I thought it was about time we attended it! Much fun was had by all and they came home with a grocery sack full of candy and smiles on their faces.
This little thing was only 7 weeks old and the kids were begging me for one of their own! LOL
