Scrapbook: Christmas Parade

11 Dec

We went to the local Christmas parade last weekend with our friends the Waltons and the Serios. It was Isobel’s fourth parade but the first one she was aware of what parades actually were. Valerie brought a surprise for the kids–glow sticks, which (unsurprisingly) were a huge hit. Note to self bring glow sticks to the parade next year. They’d also be really fun during fireworks on the Fourth of July.

Each time a float rolled past us Isobel called it a bus, and she kept saying, “I want to go on the bus! Mama and Isobel go on the bus.” She said it so firmly, as if she said it with enough conviction it would come true. I didn’t feel like lugging my regular camera around so instead I packed Camera Jr, which means the photos are kind of terrible but I love them nonetheless.

    I see your pictures came out the same yellowish hues as mine did. That lighting was butts, but it was a lot of fun!

      Those lights were certainly unique! This year was way better than last year. For starters, Isobel peed on me last year.

    We went to a similar parade last week, and Little G insisted on taking his glow stick to bed with him. I had to extract it from underneath his head after he (finally) fell asleep.

      We had to confiscate Isobel’s. She was using it as a teething ring (!).
