We took the kids to a parade this weekend. Bands, floats, balloons, horses, cool cars...what's not to love?
It was hot, but the kids didn't seem to mind. They were too busy watching the excitement unfold. They did a great job, too, staying in their seats and staying behind the blue line so they wouldn't get in the way of the parade.
Later we talked about their favorite parts. Amelia liked the cheerleaders and the horses. Isaac liked the motorcycles and the "cool cars." Alex liked the "whole, whole thing." And Sam said he liked the marching bands, though he covered his ears every time one went by.
Afterwards we had cotton candy. Now that's how to celebrate!
