- (side note: rolesville is a town notorious for cops who will pull you for going 36 in a 35. my husband, who also thinks going 57 in a 55 zone is speeding, was going ~50 in a 35 zone in rolesville after leaving the parade site. he said "well, we know where all the cops are!")

what kind of parade is on april 18th?
this has been like the best saturday ever. well, in a long time anyway. not only was the weather nice, but we had just a great day overall. besides the temporary grumpiness that kendal awoke with (which is half-way normal these days), we all had baths, i polished my toenails, actually got to straighten my hair (with more than the brush and the hairdryer) - AND put on mascara! we packed our diaper bags and got all dressed up to go to our nieces' (twins) christening this morning. we left plenty early - but here was the only snag in our perfect day - on the way there, we got stuck in traffic. we weren't sure what the traffic was from, but roads were blocked by police and fire trucks. after a while, we saw a float go by - so, we assumed this was a parade. but there weren't any warning signs up the week before!?! and what in the world would a parade be for on april 18th? who knows. i found nothing online either. it may remain a mystery forever... anyway, after going into a near panic about being late, nathaniel thankfully put the pedal to the medal and we got from rolesville to durham in record time.
