The Pet Parade

Today we met some friends and went to the Pet Parade. It was Andrew's first parade. He had a lot of fun watching all the bands, cars, clowns and, of course, pets.

Pointing to the balloons that were floating in the sky:

Our friends, Jack and Molly.

Andrew's first sucker (he tried 4 of them before the parade was over).

Mostly people brought dogs to the parade. But there were all kinds of animals there.
This girl had a monkey on her head:

This bird traveled in a wagon during the parade.

There are two adorable kids in this float. The sign said that they were a little Barack and Michelle Obama...complete with secret service agents. Too cute.

Dressed as Civil War soldiers.

Can you imagine walking the parade like this?

These were hilarious. The Shriners were riding on motorized coolers.

'Skates'....the Wolves mascot.

Hey! We know those people!

Ellie came running to see Andrew:
