We geared up for the SEC Championship Game by heading over to Lilburn on Saturday afternoon for the annual Christmas parade.
While I LOVED the fact that it was warm enough to not have to bundle up, I've got to be honest and admit that I was cursing the heat by the time we left. There's something just inherently wrong about sweating during a Christmas parade. Maybe that's just me...
Anyway, it pays to be married to the Captain. We had a prime parking spot and a prime parade viewing spot just waiting for our arrival.
And I promise it really was warm. Harris just insisted on wearing his coat...for about thirty minutes. :)
Granti, Cody, Raven, and Sam were able to join in on the fun, too!!
Emmy spent the majority of the parade eating cheerios in her stroller while the big kids had a blast watching the bands and dogs and trucks and girl scout troops walk by. The candy being thrown was also a big hit!
The highlight of the morning, however, occurred after the parade when an elf actually parachuted (seriously...from an airplane flying HIGH in the sky) into the city park. I honestly wasn't sure what to expect, but it ended up being a pretty neat (if not weird) thing. Babe LOVED getting to meet the elf. I was honestly a bit surprised by him...he was soooo not what I expected to see jumping out of a plane! He was nice, though, and the kids had a great time interacting with him.
You gotta love Lilburn.
