It was about this time that someone requested that her photo be taken as well. This is her attempt at “cheese”…just need to work on opening those eyes.
Even one of my most feared icons (Mr. Peanut is not a favourite among allergy sufferers) made is way down the street, followed by one of the all-time best lunches…a giant Pita.
There were incredible bands like this marching group. They were amazing performers that had us wishing we could watch them longer.
One of my favourite floats was the Boy Scouts – they had made a giant waterfall for a canoe, and were set up roasting marshmallows on a fake fire.
As the night started to get chilly, Whiskey asked for Garrett to pick him up. I love the surprised look on his face…he just saw another dog right before I took this.
She was very quick to inform us that this was in fact a unicorn…not a horse like we said.
…it was Santa! The crowd roared as he drove by, and children yelled his name. Its hard not to get into the Christmas spirit when you see how excited they all were.
It was a wonderfully special night with some great friends and the perfect way to start the holiday season. After some ice cream for dessert and a bittersweet goodbye, Garrett, Whiskey and I headed home to decorate our tree. It was hard not to after all the Christmas spirit we saw. But more on that soon…
