Rose Festival is here again, and this morning we biked over to watch part of the Grand Floral Parade. Nutmeg had slept through the whole thing in the ergo last year, but this year she couldn’t believe how amazing it was! Horses trotting past, people waving and smiling at her, strange gigantic floats covered in flowers, and high school marching bands with shiny brass instruments!! She waved and clapped for everyone, and didn’t stop smiling until we left for home. Parades fall into the category of things that are much more fun to do now that we have children.
