It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas

We took the girls to the Raleigh Christmas Parade yesterday. We had gone two years ago, but last year it was just too cold. We got a little bit of a late start, so we were in the 2nd row back, but we were lucky to have some room in front of us where the girls could at least walk around some.

We usually park on West street and walk up that way by the Roast Grill. That way we're kind of at the beginning.

Madeleine loved the floats where they had the pageant princesses and queens. Lily liked the color guards and cheerleaders that walked along with the bands. Stormy the pig, "farmer" Santa, the guys who pick up poop behind the horses, and the clowns were also a big hit.

We bailed a little bit after 11 to head to soccer practice. They didn't seem to mind, and I liked getting out of downtown ahead of the crowds.
