This was one of my favorite pictures from our town’s Christmas Parade last night! The Philosopher and I stood outside in the chilly air and watched the WHOLE thing start to finish! It was so much fun. It’s really sad, though. We’ve lived in this town for six years and haven’t once attended the Christmas Parade. Yesterday, I was bound and determined to get there! I’m so glad we did. It was so much fun to see all the children and adults decked out in Christmas-y garb for the event! Santa’s sleigh was also pretty exiting.
Onto the main event for this post: Wednesday Wanderment!
