I thought it sounded like fun, at least something for us to do, so we bundled the kids up and off we went. I think we parked at least 100 miles from where we needed to sit to watch the parade, at least Aiden thought so, but once we were there, he thought it was well worth it.
Emma didn't seem too impressed and just kind of sat and stared at everything. Aiden had a blast because you know what happens during parades...people throw you candy!!! He was intimidated at first, as was I, because there were a ton of bigger kids that would have tackled him down to the ground for a dum-dum. I would rather stop and get him a bag of candy on the way home! Finally, a couple of the parents spoke up to their kids and Aiden started getting braver and dove out there for the candy too.
