People are serious about this parade. So serious that they camp out the night before to have a street side view. We are not that serious. But when we showed up an hour before the parade, there was a lot of room in the grass right at the beginning of the parade route. It was good and bad - good because there was space, but bad because the parade entries came out of 3 different spots, and one of them we missed. But it was still fun!!
We stayed for about an hour, when Abbi started getting cranky. But I know she had fun and we can't wait for the next parade!
Abbi got a balloon when we first go there. That is really all that she needs to be happy! She did lose it not too long after she got it, but at least she just watched it float away and didn't throw a fit!
There was also a power line right where we were, so all of the big balloons had to be pulled down low to get under it. Another bad thing about our spot, I guess...
Both Josh and I decided that if we ever have to be in a wheelchair, we want one of these. Heck - I'd even love one right now, just to help me get around!!
