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.
