It was a beautiful day for the 2008 Stow festivities. Marie and I started the day by doing the Firecracker Fun Run. We both had pretty good times. Emily B. C. ran it, also. Her father and brother did the big race. Then we went to our usual parade viewing area for tons of candy and a wonderful picnic - as well as good seats for the parade. B.J. and Zach brought their Transformer collections for comparison. The back yard of the T. family is amazing in its beauty.
