We had a glorious time at the Macy's Thansgiving Day parade!!! I love any parade - so it was a truly spectacular experience!
We traveled up to NYC with Cory, Alyssa and Josh Jurgensmeier from Washington D.C.
On Thanksgiving morning, Darin woke up really early to save us a sweet spot on Central Park West. By the time the rest of us arrived, the parade was just getting started and we had to fight past hundreds of people to get to Darin. It was hard work - Linsy ditched the stroller in the shrubbery, held Tate and tried to diplomatically move through the crowd to reach Darin. There were several times when other parade watchers stood their ground and didn't want to move for us - so it was very helpful that Tate was yelling/ crying "Daddy! Daddy!" - that usually did the trick. Tate loved the giant balloons and danced to the music from the marching bands.
After the parade, we all walked through Central Park to a NYC restaurant for turkey dinner and then explored Rockefeller Center Christmas lights at night. A magical Thanksgiving!
