The Duke and Duchess representing Sacred Heart School in Floresville, Texas were well documented as they waved to the crowd’s in the annual Floresville Peanut Festival Parade on Saturday October 10, 2009.
The Duke, Thomas Peyton Parish was honored to have his Godfather Tracy Spring, representing his Godparents at the festivities.
Peyton’s brother who is legendary in Wilson County surprised many with his appearance in this sleepy town.
Tom and I could not wait for Peyton and Jordan to pass by. We had a great spot to take pictures, thanks to Peggy and Curtis Holcombe who invited us to share the spot that they have had for the last 20 years!
While the rest of the paparazzi was happily snapping away, I was trying to jump start a dead battery in the big fancy schmansy video camera. Thankfully, Tracy had brought a very handy back up that did the job in spite of my dizzying special effects trying to hold it steady.
Peggy had made brownies and there was a huge lunch inside the building where we sat and awaited our royal golden boy.
Tracy snapped this while we were lining up to get the best view.
We knew Peyton would be right around the corner when we saw this cute little group of cowboys and cowgirls. If you look really close you can see a little Yorkie puppy riding in a basket in the front of the pony cart!
I was glad to see that the hearts and flowers were still in place.
The parade ended all too soon!
