My view from the stage...they're all so cute in their uniforms!
This is the first year since I've been in the parade that I was not in the parade with my little brother, Sam. He grew up as a little leaguer and we were always in the parade together. Since he's a freshman at Pacifica this year, he's too old for little league. :( But it's okay, because at least we still had a parade this year! Also, another exciting thing is that we have a new addition to the Miss GG court! Since Veronica Williams won Miss Desert Valley earlier that week, she was no longer able to be on our court. The girl next in line was Missy Mendoza and we were so happy to have her with us at the parade! And she gets to hang out with us during the Strawberry Festival too!

Well, the parade started at 8AM and it was so much fun! We didn't all sit with each other, but I was glad that Jessica and I sat in a car together. The parade starts at Edgar Park, which is where I went to preschool, then it ends at Bell Intermediate, my Jr. High! When we arrived at Bell, we all walked over to the stage to get ready for the opening ceremony. Once the parade was over and the teams and parents found their spots in the audience, more of the fun began! I sang the National Anthem and gave a little speech to the kids. Mayor Bill Dalton spoke as well. I know he loves the kids and that he supports the little league. Otherwise, he wouldn't be there, especially so early in the morning! It was a great ceremony and I know the kids were ready to play ball!
