And the children were just as behaved. Oh how I love when my children behave as I wish they would all of the time.
This particular parade is usually the steamiest day of the year and I have to say I was not looking forward to it. However, the day ended up being fairly mild and as the day progressed I became more excited. My dear husband was working late again so the children and I ventured out on our own. My lovely sister and Jessi met us later on and enjoyed some time with the children as well! These are the memories I love about summer.
And again the children exhibited their parade personalities as they had at the previous parade, HOWEVER, they learned a little lesson. I noticed about half way through the parade they began opening candy. This was about at the point that I had begun to let them know that they should slow down on the candy eating. And about 10 minutes later I noticed this:
Finn crouched down next to his candy bucket completely devouring any and all candy! He knew that after the parade I would confiscate the bucket and that would be the end of that.
Then Lilly followed suit (and of course Sylvi was doing that from the beginning so no big change there).
All in all a very joy filled time. We enjoyed time with some friends and family. We enjoyed time together. What a night!

Alicia is wife, mother, and creator of Baby Elephant Ears. Baby Elephant Ears was created out of parental concern, not financial desire. In 2005, when their second child was an infant, he cried all the time and just couldn't seem to get comfortable.
After seeking advice and suggestion from the medical community and alternative medicine, they eventually ended up in the chiropractors office where their baby was successfully treated for a subluxation, discomfort most likely the result of the strain during labor, which was now being exacerbated by the normal lack of infant neck strength. Only proper neck, head, and back alignment would offer him relief. When they couldn't find a product to give their baby the necessary support, Alicia took matters into her own hands and crafted her own infant support pillow. The first Baby Elephant Ears was born!
