One of our most treasured family traditions is freezing our butts off watching the floats, marching bands, and balloons parade on by in the Parade of Lights. This year's Parade of Lights was the best ever and even the 15 degree temps didn't bring down our spirits. Ella was afraid at first as the first marching band made its way by (it was a little too loud) but once she saw the first balloon, she was in awe. She loved every horse, dog, and balloon that went by. The "woofs" and "neighs" were heard throughout the evening. We were thrilled that someone else wanted to join our little tradition this year. Ernie, Ella, Amanda and I were joined by Anthony's presence this year (Amanda's boyfriend) It was a wonderful evening.
