Parade day finally arrived! My friend came with the kids and I. We arrived early and got an awesome parking spot and front row seats. Thank goodness I had the foresight to pack some snacks because the parade started late. Or so I thought. I thought we were at the beginning of the parade but we were at the end of the route.
It got crowded. See the lamp posts … that is the sidewalk. The police were riding up and down the route telling people to stand back. They never did that were we were sitting. Apparently it does not matter at the end of the route.
Kiki finally plucked up the courage to stand with the big kids and try and get candy. Unfortunately since we were at the end everyone had run out of candy. We literally came home with four pieces of candy. It was a bummer and we will not be sitting at the end of the route again- lesson learned!
