It's Day 3 of the Activity Calendar and so far it's been great fun.
Today we're heading to the Greensboro Holiday Parade! So excited! I love parades, we've already been to the Burlington Holiday Parade, which occurred before Thanksgiving and it was great, way better than any parade I've been to in Hampton Roads! It's fun to get out and experience what our new home has to offer.
Before we left a mischievous little character caught Charlotte's eye. Our elf was found stuck in the sugar jar and unable to get out! Charlotte ran into our room to wake up Travis, "The elf was in the sugar! Daddy, the elf was in the sugar! DADDY!" Too cute, this is the best age ever.
Greensboro is a pretty big city, I wasn't sure how big this parade was going to be or how popular so I made sure to get to the area a few hours early. We were able to walk around and enjoy the downtown area some.
See the twins in their matching white fur coats? They got there as early as we did (2 hours early) and stood there as people started crowding around them, they stood their ground and didn't move once! By the way, the parade was almost 3 hours long, so they were standing there for about 5 hours!
Lexi was having a blast!
The horses pulling the stagecoach were beautiful! Prancing along, I'm so glad I caught a picture of the one in the front throwing his (her?) head up, tossing its mane.Blue and Gold Marching Machine. The marching band from North Carolina A & T University. They were amazing! They put on a really great show, I'm such a sucker for marching bands.
Like every holiday parade, this one ended with Santa. Charlotte was thrilled, she's really into Santa this year. It's so cute!
What do you get when you cross a bell with a skunk?
Charlotte did get this joke and was giggling about it all day. Silly girl.
