We have gone to Crusin the Coast for the past 7 years and have participated in the parade they have on Monday nights. One year my son went on another tour of duty for his country and left behind a wife and a daughter. Things worked out so well for them and us. His wife and daughter was able to join us for the weekend and be in the parade. My hero's daughter really enjoyed her time throwing the beads, dublooms, and candy to the people on the street. She would go from one side of the car to the other. My husband and I was glad that my son's wife and daughter was able to join us, make some wonderful memories, and hopefully bring some joy into their lives.
