Our first parade took place this weekend. Hot sun, high noon, wildly stimulating.
It was the kind of hot that was not fun, and felt a little dangerous.
Thank god for Doug, the backpack he was willing to wear, the stroller he was willing to push... and a short kick in the proverbial shin to anyone who planned this for noon, this CHILDREN AND THE ARTS parade, featuring tons of little kids from all of the area daycares and school programs.
Water water water, blessed shade in the park at the end of the walk.... then home to collapse on the couch.
Our daycare graciously provided the floral decorations. I'm just sayin'.
