I was lucky to get some pizza slices from a nearby pizzeria, as the streets were all closed down, and a quick trip to a close by hamburger place wasn't possible. When we had eaten and gotten everything organized, it was time for the parade to begin. We found the perfect spot btw, just behind the judging table, so second row, but on a little wall, perfect to lay the heavy blanket on, with the kids wagon in front of us! Our friends Pamela, Bill and Calvin had met up with us at the theater for the fun, and they joined us outside as well.
Then, it took forever to get out of the parking lot, as everything was closed off, and it took quite a while for everything to get organized and lots of cars needed to be directed left and right. After 20 minutes in the car, we finally left the parking lot and were on our way home. The kids were tired, but stayed awake as Cassie was helpful entertaining them in the backseat, as I was driving.
A long eventful day went to it's end, and I wasn't far behind the kids to go to bed!
