Wordless Wednesday: He’s Our Champion

My Dad has been marching in the Philadelphia Mummers Parade with the Woodland Stringband every year since he was 3 years old.  You cannot begin to imagine the thrill he must have felt this New Year’s Day when for the first time in the bands 85 year history, they received the coveted 1st prize.  I have never seen my Dad smile as much as I have this year.  I am so thankful that my children have had the opportunity to share the immense joy with him.  My son Aidan, who is currently learning to play the saxophone and is a marshall in the South Philadelphia Stringband (where my husband plays the saxophone), was especially excited to share this special time with his Pop at their recent stringband serenade to celebrate their victory.
