Holidazzle Parade

Last Thursday our good friends, Shannan and Greg, invited us to go downtown with them and their little guy for the Holidazzle Parade.  Even though it was a little past L's bedtime I immediately accepted the invitation.  I don't know what it is, but having a baby makes me even more in the holiday spirit.  I envisioned standing outside in the freezing cold for hours and fighting off crowds while protecting my little lady, but I was game anyways. 

For once reality was actually way better than my imagination.  1) We set up shop at this great little restaurant with corner windows, where L and I shared butternut squash ravioli in between running outside to see the floats.  2) There was barely a crowd - no craning necks to see the lights or elbows to protect my girl from.  3) It was not even cold!  I didn't even wear my coat (or the scarf, mittens, long johns, etc. that I had brought.)

It was such a great night...with maybe just a little too much wine.  Seems to be a recurring theme with those guys.  ;)
