Led by the wild and wacky Jeff Hopkins, The Babies Club 2006 marches in the Ladera Ranch Fourth of July parade.

The group took first place in the category of Most Patriotic and I suspect the reason we won is because Jeff’s gymnastics (cartwheels and wild marching) timed perfectly as the group passed the judges stand.  Also, the sheer number of families that actively participated was great considering the group started five years ago!

It was a warm day and by the end of the parade Jeff was drenched and the kids were parched but it sure made for a fun way to mark the halfway point of the summer.
