Both of the boys marched in Memorial Day parades playing their instruments.
They marched in DIFFERENT parades.
The girls waiting for the parade to begin. All dressed for the holiday!
JM marched in the New Era parade and needed to arrive at 8:30 am. The parade was short but they also had to play for the service. He was finished by 10:15.
