The parade was like the parade is every year, some tractors, old cars and horses. Again Halette was too young because they do let off some loud noises but Tenaya did great.

Tenaya had to wear her head collar because this was her first outing in a month.

This is how you fit a great dane and two other dogs in a Mini.
Tenaya was ready for her first outing just in time for our Fourth of July parade, well third of July parade. Yes, I know third of July kind of sucks all the fun out of the fourth of July and our town is always known for making great choices.....cough, cough not. Although, I do see their side for budget reasons, it still really does suck. Seeing that we were pushed into the holiday mood a day early, we watched the parade and were invited by my parents to go to Sacramento for the day and visit Old Sacramento.
I was a little hesitant to drive to Sacramento which is an hour, hour and a half drive already and then to add the holiday weekend, but it turned out to be a great day (other than the camera died as soon as we parked the car in Sacramento). It wasn't crowed, everyone was walking the streets in costumes, and there was a little free show that we stumbled upon. I wish I knew the name of the show because it was a good laugh until they started pulling people from the audience. As they came further and further back in the rows, we knew it was time to leave. Tenaya did great with the laughter and applause. In fact, no one even really noticed she was there. From there we went and ate right on the water, which was peaceful. After we finished eating we headed over to the candy store where I let my 9 year old nephew walk Tenaya. She did great, but had to wear the head collar for him. Tenaya didn't even blink when the horses rode by pulling the carriage.
I am glad the weekend is over since our holiday lasted 3 days and we visited with multiple families. All said and done, it was a great weekend.
