Happy St. Pats from Philly!

Last weekend was a blast with cousin Shelby coming all the way from Iowa for a visit...

On Saturday, we visited Hershey, PA (pictures coming...) and did all but bathe in chocolate....

and on Sunday, we watched the Philadelphia St. Patrick's Day Parade.  One thing you may not know about me....I LOVE PARADES.  I don't know what it is....the excitement, the floats, the people waving at you as they go by...it's all just awesome.

So, on my very official parade rating scale, I give this parade a 7...but only in its lack of floats because it for sure did not lack personality.  It was really fun to watch and gave the big city of Philadelphia a small-town feel for a few hours.  I mean, seriously...how many people in a big, busy city smile at you and wave as they walk by on a typical day?

  1. In Minnesota it seemed we had a parade every other week end in the summer. My girls loved it. We walked in some of them, rode in others, and sometimes we just simply watched. We haven't been to one since we moved here. I'll have to put it on my to do list this summer. We've deffinately been missing out.
