This morning I was heading to the grocery store, when I realized that the main road was all set up for the Christmas parade (that I didn't even know was happening today). I turned around, went home, put Keenan in the stroller and walked the block down the hill and we sat and watched the parade. It was perfect, because we got there just after it started (so no annoying wait), the weather was sunny and beautiful, and as soon as it was over, we got to go home, not battle our way through traffic! The walk back UP the hill was a little harder though... =0)
Keenan seeing the Jolly old Elf himselfThis afternoon, we went to Destin Commons with John, Wendi and Isaac to have the kids pictures taken with Santa. (I wonder if Keenan figured it was the same one!) Neither of the kids was terribly pleased with the whole thing, but it was fun anyway... =)
When I went on base to buy groceries after the parade, there was quite a lot of "post parade" traffic going on base... and who was working at the gate, checking ID's? None other than the Base Commander himself in his dress blues! That doesn't happen every day...
It was a little cool, so we headed over to Panera Bread for some warmth and soup and sandwiches.
