Back in April of last year one of my post surgery goals was to attend the local Burbank Parade. We kept with tradition and made it to that event. Well, today it was the same event -- a year later -- and I am happy to say that we attended the parade this morning.
The theme was Hollywood
One of the highlights was seeing Sully participate with his Tae Kown Do studio. This parade always falls on the last Saturday in April. Because of that we have always referred to it as Mike's Birthday Parade. As Sully and his group marched by us he yelled "Happy Birthday Dad!"
Sully is in blue and has face paint to look like Po from Kung Fu Panda. His routine included doing a jumping double front kick and breaking boards.
That's Bugs Bunny
The local Relay for Life float had a large chicken and a sign that read "Cluck Cancer"
As dates and events continue to pass that mark the first year since diagnosis and treatment I am reminded of how precious life is and truly thankful and blessed to be healthy and strong.
