Jim and I took the kids to the Santa parade in downtown GR a few weeks ago. It was actually a pretty good parade- there were even balloon floats!
Ethan thought the sirens were pretty loud on that fire truck.
Nicholas, Sunny, and Ivana were there too- Nick and Ethan enjoying some hot chocolate and the parade.
Lucia and Grandma Sue- Lucia did pretty good too- she loved the big balloons when they went by her!
Like this elephant- the people holding the strings had to pull it down so it could squeeze under the stop lights.

The floats were pretty good this year- I thought this one was pretty cute.
I thought this one was pretty funny!
This one was a little creepy- something about it's face . . .
The Grinch was there too! I did not get a good picture of Santa- but he was there too- along with some reindeer!
Ethan had a great time collecting the candy- though you could tell it was one of his first parades because the other kids around him were much quicker at picking it off the street- there's always next year!
