Today I took the kids to the St. Patrick's Day Parade. Wish it had been a little warmer!
"Mama! No more pictures!"
We had a great time, I was surprised at how long the parade was. It lasted for an hour. The kids scooped up plenty of candy and are all now ready for some afternoon naps. Here are a few snapshots of what we saw.
A green dog
Elaborate balloon costumes
The new mascot for our semi-pro baseball team, the Wichita Wingnuts. (Yes, it's a squirrel. I'm not entirely sure what a squirrel has to do with a wingnut. I'm guessing that having a screw for a mascot would have just been an invitation for too much trouble. But a squirrel? I get that squirrels hide real nuts but it's a stretch to try to connect it with wingnuts. ::sigh::)
A quasi self-portrait in the shiny side of a Model T. Wished I had brought my professional camera when I saw the reflections...
Those wild & crazy Shriners
Now it's back to sock knitting in hopes I can get a little closer to where I need to be before class in a few hours...
