For me, there are few things more exciting than hearing a ginormous marching band, watching motorcycles zooming and seeing clowns running around like crazy. Parades make summer really feel like summer. We went to one in our neighborhood a few weeks ago and it was a great day for a parade. For some reason, it ended up being the longest parade ever, so we didn’t get to stick around for the whole thing, but we did get to see someone special-our babysitter’s mom! In costume of course:)
The boys loved dashing into the street for candy and I think this is the first time I’ve actually let them eat parade candy. The lollipops were definitely their favorite and I was glad they managed to score a couple chocolates that I snuck while they napped. Yum!
