A Surprise Parade

We decided to make a trip downtown this afternoon to hang out and totally forgot that it was the weekend before Thanksgiving.... which means it was the day of the Magnificent Mile Parade of Lights.  We decided to jump in and join the festivities, even though we were certainly hesitant with two young kids in a very large stroller amongst a huge crowd of Chicagoans.  We fought our way through to get our own piece of real estate on Michigan Ave. to watch the parade -- Conor and Madeleine's first real parade!  Well worth it.....
