We had some time before the parade was going to get to our area, so Dustin went home for some chairs while Addison and I stayed.
Addison eventually wanted out of her stroller so she could go be the little social butterfly that she is. She loved watching all the people.
Daddy came back with our chairs (thank you, Daddy!) and we heard from people up the street that the parade was coming our way! We took some photos while we waited.
Addison had so much fun. She clapped so much, I'm surprised her little palms weren't bright red!
There was a lot of candy being
pelleted gently thrown at us, especially by the younger children in the parade who thought it would be fun to hurl ever-so-kindly hand hard pieces of candy to a young toddler. We encouraged Addison to give away her candy and she gladly obliged. I must say, she is the sweetest, most generous 19 month old I've ever seen when it comes to sharing.
(Notice that in lieu of candy, Addison munched on Veggie Chips). That's my girl!
No, I take that back. This is my girl! She loved the Hooters stickers that the friendly, barely-dressed Hooters girls gave her. Classy.
