Holiday Parade

Today, since it was so well advertised (I joke! I heard nothing of it except that the kids got out of school early!), I decided to take the kids and go to the town's Holiday Parade. It was actually quite fun! I met up with a new friend from our new ward and a couple of her kids and we watched and laughed and had a great time! Her daughter was on a float towards the end and at the very end was Santa. Here are some pictures I took.

The start of the parade.



I guess this guy is a local weatherman. I had to get a picture of his name. :)



Ah, at this point in the parade, Kim (my friend) and I wondered where exactly they keep all these floats from year to year. Like "oh, I can't park in my garage because there's a giant red shoe in there"??? I did tell him that I loved his fries.



These guys were way cool. They would circle around going really fast and fall out of formation and go back into formation. I really liked watching them, like the nerd I am.



Here we all are enjoying the parade. Too bad my Ryan looks like a fish.



Probably the only snow we'll see this year. Wait....lemme ask Larry Sprinkle....



And the man of the hour. Santa!

I love parades and a Christmas parade would be so much fun to go and watch. This would make a great family tradition :)
