Festival of Lights Parade
So I have a confession. I had never attended my city’s Christmas parade, until tonight. I’ve actually been in the parade a handful of times when I was a young teenager, on our church’s float or walking beside it. Earlier this year we took Annabella to the St Patrick’s Day parade and she LOVED it, so I thought it would be fun to take the girls to the Christmas parade.
In the cold.
Without using a stroller.
Honestly, we were all cranky because we didn’t eat dinner before and Annabella didn’t really get a nap today. We got pizza when we got downtown, which was hard to eat because we didn’t have a stroller or a place to sit. It was just a poorly planned outing.
We still had fun, even though it didn’t turn out as I had hoped it would.
Hopefully our next holiday themed outing won’t be so stressful. Although, we do have two little ones, so it’s kind of expected for any outing to be a bit stressful. We will, however, make sure to stock the diaper bag with easy to eat snacks. Oh and we’ll bring the double with us.
