parades, playgrounds, friends, and movies

Saturday, the drill team performed at the St. Patrick's Day parade, so we all tagged along for the fun.

During the 2 hours we had to wait until it started, M&M took the opportunity to share their cuteness with (or harrass, depending on how you looked at it) some of the other parents.

That photo was taken right before Mariah took a dive onto the curb.

I was opening the door for them to come out so they wouldn't destroy the Flow's car, but Mariah thought I was closing the door so she leaned on it. She tumbled out onto the curb, hitting her head and leg and arms and stomach along the way. :O( Poor girl.


Finally she stopped crying, the parade started, and we took our seats.

We waited and waited and finally these cute girlies marched our way:

Smiling and sparkling and awesome as ever!
Naturally, they won 1st place. :o)


M&M shared a cotton candy.

Mallory really enjoyed it.

We stopped in the carnival area for a quick ride:

Then, as a reward for waiting all morning and running down the 2(?) mile parade route, I gave them what they'd been asking for since we first got there.

10 minutes on the playground!

:o)

It was fun, but we were exhausted. All 5 of us.

We went home and flopped down, relaxed for a few hours, then headed back out.

We went with our good friends:

Fun fun fun! We haven't been to the movies since....I don't know when. I honestly can't remember. Going to the movies used to be a way to kill time, now it's a rare and special treat!
Arissa said the movie wasn't what she expected, which makes perfect sense since she's so used to the original Disney version, and doesn't know what to expect from a "Tim Burton" movie. But she enjoyed it nonetheless. Me, I enjoyed being out of the house, hanging out with friends, and eating movie theatre popcorn. Doesn't get much better than that!
