Last weekend, the kids and I ventured out to our hometown for their yearly Christmas parade. I have made it to every parade since Charli was born, except last year due to working at the police department. Just another reason to be thankful for no nights shifts now. My Mom always has family and friends over immediately after, for soups and tons of goodies. As always she really out done herself this year. I ate way more than I should have and I am pretty sure that baby B did so as well.
For as long as I can remember our family always gathers at the same exact spot to watch the floats come by. People in this small town take their parade very seriously as well. No joke. They go and park their cars in the early morning hours just to ensure their quality of float sighting.
This year also had to be the warmest year that I can recall as well. No jackets was amazing but it honestly just does not seem like Christmas time in Kentucky, yet.
The theme of the parade was "Christmas Vacation" and boy did some of the people really get into it. I swear one man looked to be pulled right off the Christmas Vacation movie scene. Not to shabby Scottsvegas, I must give you a total thumbs up for this years parades and the lack of thousands of church floats.
