Oscar does the BYU Homecoming Parade

After a lively walk of trying to catch Oscar's shadow, we found a great place to sit and watch the annual BYU Homecoming Parade on the corner of 900 East and 800 North.

We were right where the sun was in your eyes as the parade turned the corner.  Remember, we did find a place to sit.  Oscar, however,  kept standing.

There were things to see and candy to catch.

Seriously, this is such a great marching band.

We are true blue fans of BYU Glen and I.  We met here as students, one of our first dates was a BYU football game,  and the campus still feels like home, even with all the new construction.

Hooray for the dancers!

So much energy.

There was a variety of conveyances.

A few floats.

All kinds of cars.

And of course, fire trucks.

This shot is for my daughter, a former RA.  Residence hall advisers really are a part of the college experience.

Brigham Young was almost there in person.  Brigham Young University started as a smaller academy started by Brigham Young in the mid-1800's.  I've been reading about Brigham Young this month.  More on that in a later post.

It was a glorious autumn day in Provo, Utah.  Honestly, the month of October in Utah defies description.

Looks fun! I love this time of year in Provo. It really is glorious. Our temps here in Mesa are tolerable, at least -- and downright cool in the mornings. Fall's my favorite :)
