Here's a picture of our half of the crew, we never did get a picture of the whole group...
I thought that my boys would enjoy the parade, but I had no idea how much! It was definately worth the late hours!
Breanna brought pizza to share and we had dinner while we waited for the parade to start. We had a few hours to kill since we got there so early!
One of the other moms thought ahead and brought a box of sidewalk chalk. Such a good idea! Our kids decorated the whole street while waiting for the parade, it was lots of fun for them. They were COVERED in black dirt from the road!
This was when the four jets flew overhead in formation, they loved that!
Once the parade started, they were so excited about EVERYTHING that walked/drove/marched/danced by us. Their two favorite things were the princess floats and the marching bands (which there were LOTS of). Sam was a bit smitten by all the pretty girls in fancy dresses!
Another notable mention was the Spokane Indian tribe in their full traditional dress, the kids were mesmerized! Whenever a marching band came by they showed off their amazing dancing skills, I can't believe they could keep up this energy for the entire night, but they did! This video is a small sampling of the show they put on...
It was such a fun night. I will definately go again, I'm so glad that Breanna suggested it! We are paying a price today, though, for the lack of sleep...Andrew was a monster at church! Oh well, I guess that's the price we pay for good memories!
