the last saturday in November
was our city's annual Santa Claus parade.
it is such a fun tradition.
some of the shops and banks down town give out hot chocolate.
(some hot chocolate is better than others- but now we know where to go for the good stuff!)
candy is handed out-
lots and lots of candy canes, of course.
it isn't that great as far as parades go-
lots of cars and trucks with signs,
it is cold here in the north!
Santa is always on the very last float,
it was a fun time.
(and Ben had a friend come along.)
and the kids just moaned when I made them stop by a window and take a picture with me.
but they humored me,
and I love them for it!
