We took A to her first parade two weeks ago. It was the TaIIahassee $pringtime Parade. This was our first time attending such a thing locally, but I'm so glad we went. We had so much fun as a family. It brought back memories of standing in the @rkansas heat watching beads and candy get thrown at us.
A really enjoyed the bands. We saw several high school bands and told her she could play in one when she grows up. She was very, very excited about that.
Elmo was handing out with the Easter Bunny.
A and I really enjoyed this float. Green is A's favorite color. I love frogs and thought it was pretty funny seeing frogs play volleyball.
As soon as I saw this, I thought of Tiger Woods, but A screamed "DAT'S A BIG BOLF GOLL!", indeed!
My hair was a mess from holding her on my shoulders for two hours since it was so packed. She loved her necklaces! I think she made off like a bandit with the flash of a smile!
At one point during the parade, A looked at me and said "Are you thinking what I'm thinking?", I smiled and asked her what she was thinking. She told me "This is EXCITING!" [think jazz hands exciting]
Did you attend parades as a child? Do you go now, as an adult?
