Clarksville Little League Parade

We had a long and chilly day, as did many other baseball families.  Bright and early at 8:30 this morning, we were getting ready for the annual Clarksville Little League Parade.  Each team in the league had a "float" and we traveled all around Clarksville, waking people out of their weekend slumber.  Daven really wasn't sure what to think.

As you can see in the background, we had firetrucks to accompany the troop.  One of papaw's fellow police officers led the parade, while many others blocked off traffic so that the kiddos could ride around safely on a variety of different trailers and trucks.

I rode on the trailer with Daven and his team while daddy drove around and watched us from a couple different spots.

After the long parade route, we ended up back at the ball park, where they handed out trophies for the best floats in each division.  There was a scare and a pause in festivities when one of the coaches had a seizure.  Luckily, there were plenty of nurses there to help take care of him until the ambulance could arrive (Aunt Lauren and Uncle Gary were part of the group that helped him) and we hope that he is going to be ok.  It was startling to see, but all of the kids did a great job staying calm and remaining out of the way.

Our team won for the tball division!  I'm sure that the dugout moms made that possible.  All we did was show up to an already decorated trailer.

After all of this, we took a lunch break as a family to Arby's and then Daven played a game.  I didn't actually get any pictures, but he was a trooper and actually got up to bat twice.  He didn't run the bases, but it's progress!

We all took a nap when we got back home.  Phew, what a day!
