Saturday afternoon we headed out to Pride of Lancaster 2010. Lyz, Avery and Delaney met us there. After a 20 minute long parallel parking experiment, we were on our way.
It was a very very hot day. I would like to petition all of the gays to please change Pride month to October, or March. Hot, Humid and Hazy=melty Heidi. We still managed to have some fun.
This is the second Pride that Avery has gone to. She knows what gay means and in this has shown me that our acceptance and tolerance of the things around us are very much learned traits. When you ask Avery what gay means, she will tell you it is when two people of the same sex get married. She will then add that girls married is good, boys married seems silly. Hmmm…we must need to introduce Avery to more gay men!
Thank you Lyz and Chris for being so supportive of Jenn and I. I still have the copy of Lyz’s final term paper from college where she wrote all about her support of gay rights and why she believes Jenn and I should be allowed to get married. Thank you for teaching your children acceptance. I often joke that Lyz has more gay pride than Jenn and I put together!! In fact, she is the one who found out when it was and made sure that we were all going!
