Parade Day... and Playdough Fun

This morning we went to the Holiday Heritage Parade here in Charlottesville. As much as I really don't care for history all that much, I like living in a place that has a lot of history. We hadn't been to the parade before and so we were walking along the Downtown Mall and suddenly found ourselves face-to-face with these giant Clydesdales. Umm, we were in the parade. Things are a little more relaxed down here than what we're used to. :) Here are some pics!

The horses we nearly ran into...
 Jefferson, Madison, and Monroe. No, they're not actors, those are the real guys. :)
 Monticello High marching band. Ahh, memories of high school marching band...
 The "floats" in the parade were decorated golf carts. Humorous.
 The boys. :)
 Mr. S-a-n-t-a. :)

There are so many holiday events in Charlottesville and I am happy that we can really enjoy them this year. Last year, Dean was still tethered to cords and tubes and what-have-you, not to mention that he couldn't even hold his head up. It was a lot harder to get out. 

Tim & Natalie came over and we had some fun with playdough. We found out that Natalie is quite the playdough sculptor... we needed one of those in the family! Some good laughs. :)
