Too bad that big ol' mirror blocked her out of the picture. However, if you click to enlarge, I'm sure you'll be able to see "The First Dude" (Todd Palin) holding baby Trigg right up front there! (oh and his secret service dude looking out at the road ahead as well) Trust me, Sarah was standing at the front of the bus waving as they left the rally last Sunday. You can see her shoulder if you look really hard in the bus door's side window!
We arrived at 'THE VILLAGES' around 2:30 Sunday afternoon, to find these!
Main street was jammed pack! We were so excited though and didn't mind that we couldn't even get into the fenced in area where Sarah would take the stage. We were able to watch her on the big screen. Thankfully, the Lord supplied a shade tree for mom to stand under. Shane and I tried shading ourselves with the poster we had made. It read: "Vote for Trigg's Mommy!" The photos below tell the rest of the story!
Can you tell Mom loves pink?! Click to enlarge photo for
a better look at the button she bought.
The theater marquee welcomes Sarah!
When leaving the rally and this guy stopped us at the corner, my heart leapt for joy, for I knew it signaled that the motorcade would be passing right in front of us.
That's when I yelled er, asked mom to put the car in park, I was getting out to take a photo. By the time I stepped up on the curb, mom was right beside me holding the poster we had made. Everyone on the street corners were taking a stance for good viewing of the Governor as she came by.
As soon as the nice officer allowed us to go, we followed the Straight Talk Express out of The Villages onto the county highway, where people were lined up for miles with signs of support for the McCain/Palin ticket!
What a day of excitement and pure joy! We now were on the road to Orlando to meet up with my aunts and cousin for a week in a resort! More to come about that later.
