Instead of running out to Bel Air to get the plastic cake tiers, I used cardboard cake rounds with Johnson's Baby products for the pillars. And instead of the flowers I've decorated with in the past, I used more baby products from Johnson's, and a few toys. Our baby shower is on Friday, and I hope Hilary likes the cake!

Told from the point of view of the 5-year old inhabitant of Room, it's about his life there and after. It was certainly a tear jerker, and a little disturbing at times (sometimes I couldn't read it for a few days at a time). When I told Tom what it was all about, he said it sounded stupid, but what does he know? I still liked it a lot, and I thank Chyanna from the Tidewater for recommending it.

Today was a hot day comprised of our usual three parades: Dundalk, Towson, and Catonsville. While in Dundalk, we saw Kayla (a former member of our section) and her two daughters. In Towson, these were a few fun parade entries.
I think this is the first time I've ever seen the Weinermobile in person!
In Catonsville, after our concert for the Fields family , who graciously allow us to hang out in their yard before we step off and provide snacks and beverages, we saw Izzy and Dave, our former section leader and her husband, along with their daughter. Jen was also there with her new son. Aside from being a long, hot day, it was quite enjoyable.

As soon as the fireworks were over, I headed home, to get some sleep for tomorrow's parades.
