This year Shawn had to work, so we spent the day with Papa and Gigi. The girls went to their first ever parade, and I quickly remembered why I had not ever attempted a parade with any of the girls before :) I could only find one pair of Zoya's headphones at the time and I really wish I had the other pair for Sofia! She was a bit terrified!! With Zoya's headphones she was fine but not too interested in the parade. Mila was only scared with the REALLY LOUD ANNOYING 100 firetrucks :) So all in all, our first parade was....well neither a roaring success nor an utter failure :) They LOOKED adorable...that's all that matters, right? HAHA!
A bird's eye view :)
A little dancing to one of the floats that was playing music :)
Mila is thinking, "What the &^%$ was THAT sudden loud scary noise?!" Snuggling Papa for some comfort!
Poor Sofia did not really enjoy much of the parade!
Zoya and Gigi
Mya's twin (for now), puppy Lilly :)
They were HAPPY to be back in the car!
How'd we get so lucky?! That's a lot of precious cargo!
One by one they were OUT on the way home! In fact, Sofia NEVER woke up until almost 4 hours later! All these new experiences are exhausting!
Not gonna lie, I sat in the peaceful air conditioned car for 10 minutes before taking them inside :)
We had a picnic with Daddy, who was finally home from work, and Papa and Gigi, but skipped the fireworks....maybe in a few years we'll be brave enough to try those!
