The boys also had their 5-year checkup at the pediatrician. (Mattie is at about the 38th percentile in height/weight -- or one of those, anyhow.) Overall they're doing fine, although the doc wants to keep an eye on their blood pressure, and recommended also seeing an opthamologist at some point (not due to any specific concern about their vision; she just recommends it for former preemies). The boys had to get three vaccinations, which they did not like one bit! (We had to hold them down, and the nurse commented, "They have some fight in them!" Yep.) Mattie was fine a few minutes after they were done, but poor Jamesie was limping around until this morning -- I think they must have hit something other than muscle when they did his shot! At least they got some stickers and t-shirts, which they enjoyed.

Walt and Uncle Jim were part of the Veterans' Float -- they were the only ones to walk the entire parade route!
One of the coolest floats was "From Austria to Eden", which included a sign with names of all the families who immigrated from Austria (most of the town).
After their trip through the parade route, the cousins had a great time scooping up the candy thrown by people on the floats. (Matthew and James didn't really participate in that, since they don't care about candy.) For the adults, there was a float passing out cups of beer!
