For the first time in years I actually had the opportunity to enjoy the Constitution Day. Got a new dress and everything! In my twenties I didn’t care much for this day, but now I love it! I love the marching bands, I love all the beautiful bunads and I LOVE how we celebrate! Took a few pictures, I must admit I’m really lazy at doing that. I like to enjoy the moments so I always forget to have the camera ready.
On our way to my parents we had to weave through the parade that was ongoing. There are three parades in my town, one in the morning for kids and schools, one mid-day for organizations (like dance studios, choirs, charities etc) and one in the afternoon for the russ. The russ is the seniors who graduates college.

Last but not least; me! Since I don’t have a bunad (wah!) I go for wearing the colors of our flag 😛 Red, white and blue! And the yummy cocktail I’m holding is a side car. Gots to have cocktail when watching parade!
Had a very nice day with my parents,my grandmother, three sisters, their kids and my husband with good food, good drinks and good company.
