We started going when Lily was 3 or 4 and we haven't missed one since. We normally go with our friends Richard and Shara but this year they couldn't go and it was the first time in 12 yrs that they have missed it. Lucky for us Hollis and the girls were down for the day and they wanted to join us.
|A big bunch of crazy happy waiting for the parade.|
I think I may have mentioned before that parades in Miami are different than parades anywhereelseintheworld, they have their own unique flair, yeah, that's it, flair. Hollis and I were laughing our bottoms off at some of the oddball stuff that made it into this one. But since we went for the kids I took photos of things that the girlies would want to remember.
|Ron Magil from Zoo Miami, if there is a parade anywhere in Miami, Ron and a snake are in it....ALWAYS|
|I am not sure.|
|A marching band and this one the girls actually looked happy to be here.|
|The float from Miami Childrens Hosp. What can I say that hospital holds a special place in my heart.|
|Oh my that's blurred, the Shriners|
|This horse was gorgeous but was right on top of me before I saw it.|
|The actual Jr Orange Bowl float|
|Gang of bikers, not sure if they were meant to be in it or if they crashed the parade.|
|The winning float. There never are many floats.|
|Flag twirlers. These girls were so good.|
