You may have seen my post last week about the Crib Race held at Butler University last month to celebrate Day Nursery’s 110th anniversary and The Week of the Young Child.  Our official race starter was 500 Festival Princess, Jennifer Eakins, a Ball State sophomore, who attended preschool at the Day Nursery Federal Center.  Today we got to spend more time with Jennifer when she made a special visit to the Federal building to check out her old Day Nursery stomping grounds and to lead the Day Nursery children’s parade around the building (try doing that in heels!) We really appreciate Jennifer finding time in her busy race weekend schedule to visit Day Nursery.  Here are a few pictures from today’s unofficial 500 festival parade.

Not everyone stayed awake for the whole trip. This buggy did have an roof on it to provide some shade but we took it off for the "photo op"
