Annaliese and I had a great time, ate some yummy snacks and left to return home. It was only a 20 minute drive home and Annaliese slept the whole way home. We allowed her to sleep about 45 minutes and woke her up, put her in some warm clothes and headed downtown to see her first Holiday Parade!
It was a lot of fun! Arriving there just as it was about to start, we set up camp right there the parade was beginning. Annaliese was waving her arms clapping and doing her infamous very high pitched "Eeeeeeeeee!" sounds! We danced to the marching bands and watched all of the brightly lit Christmas floats go by, but after an hour of standing outside in the cold, Annaliese became very cold and irritable so we left and headed home to our warm house.
We will definitely be doing this every year!
