Thomas Orthodontics makes waves with a float!

After hours and hours of work some blood, tons of sweat and even a few tears we made a float for Salem days for Thomas Orthodontics.  Thanks to my dad who is an all-star at Jimmie-rigging things, he made the entire float from scratch!  Also thanks to my awesome siblings (and Kelly's niece) and my mom who watched the kids until LATE into the night twice!  It turned out great and I have not laughed so hard in years!  Here are pictures of our success!
Walking to the community breakfast (can I just say I love this town!)

Crazy kids who threw out over 100 LBS of candy!  Yes you read that right over 100 LBS!

Shirts designed by an amazing graphic designer!

The float... it may not look like much but let me tell you it was HARD to make!

Getting ready for the parade (do you see a small amount of all the candy in the corner?)

Our family in front of the float!

Wow! Way to go. I can't believe all the candy. I'm sure all children present were in HEAVEN!

It turned out great - worth the blood, sweat and tears! The kids loved riding on the float and throwing candy - all 80 lbs of it! I think there will be a great pay off with some new patients for James - it was wonderful advertizing.

A dentist throwing candy? Great idea! I love that little town, too. Nice work!

I can't even imagine trying to make a float! It really looks great! I think you guys did a great job. I did go to Salem Days when I was a kid and loved it! It really is a great place to live!

Nice float! I wish I could have been there to help out, and to help eat all that candy!
