Thought I would share pictures of the float our #2 worked so hard on. I cannot tell you the number of hours that she, the rest of the chairs (guys and girls), and the sorority and fraternity put into making this a reality. The details just blew me away!
First however, I will show you the winning floats...
Class A Winner:
Judges Choice Winner:
Now our daughter's, Mary Poppins theme...a Spoonful of Sic 'Em:
Along the parade route...
And, now for some close-ups (all the floats are parked along a campus street after the parade so people can see them up close and take pictures).
|#2 and her fellow bestie float chair|
|The carousel and park seating.|
|Big Ben in the park.|
|Bears of course!|
|The beautiful willow tree, and yes, all the flower boxes were filled with fresh flowers!|
|So proud of her!!|
|One of my favorite chalkboard signs on the float (there were several).|
|A closer look at Big Ben. The clock hands worked on all four sides. My #2 hand painted all of the clock faces herself. She got to keep two of them...I can't wait to bring one home to hang in our home.|
|Baylor cottage, again fresh flowers in the window boxes.|
|Another look at the carousel. The blue in the picture is actually a working stream!|
|A side view of all the beautiful fresh flowers and bear bridge.|
|The willow tree looked so real. Baylor's game schedule this year. Love all the bright colors.|
|Another look at Big Ben.|
|Another of the hand painted chalkboard signs.|
|Loved the detail on the stone pillars (they were textured) and the lanterns.|
So much time spent on every little detail. Hope you enjoyed the pictures. We are still in awe of the float they produced this year.
Sic 'Em Bears!!!
