Yes, we are crazy. We braved the cold and all of the snow (we must have 8 to 10 inches) to go to the parade of lights and a holiday lights walk tonight. Lots of bundling and layering was done to ensure adequate warmth. And I had my little heater (Julian) strapped to the front of me. 🙂
Other than some grousing by Jody as we drove there (well, he drove as he cursed the windshield wipers that were not doing their job) and walked five blocks (he with Ava on his shoulders, and me with Julian in the Ergo) to catch the parade before it ended, it was a good time.
The kids enjoyed the parade and lights. We got free hot chocolate and cookies, saw fireworks, and Ava said she saw “two Santas!” So it was a bit crazy with the cold and the snow, but it was a good, fun kind of crazy. 🙂
Can ya tell I took that pic on the right of the 4 of us with my arm outstretched? Don’t I look a bit manic? LOL See, crazy.
