Christmas Parade

Such a lovely day in every way.  We slept in and then had some breakfast and got the day rolling.  We went shopping for a birthday present for a friend's birthday party in the afternoon and we bought some paint for the bedroom.  Guess I can really get going on that project now!

After lunch I took Nate to the birthday party and then came home and helped Marko and Sean rake and bag leaves.  It was such a gorgeous day to be outside and getting yard work done. We got our things packed up in the van for the parade and then we all headed over to pick Nate up from the party.

On our way into town Marko and I remembered that we had a kids eat free card for the Swiss Chalet and from there we formulated a new Christmas parade plan.  Normally we park at MCC and watch the parade from their parking lot but this time we plunked ourselves down in front of the DQ parking lot, not far from the Swiss.  It worked out really well.  The kids enjoyed the parade and afterwards we quickly packed up and then scooted over to the restaurant.  Lots of other people had the same idea but the staff were ready for the crowds and quickly got people seated and fed.

After our meal we did a bit of shopping and on our way out of Charlottetown we popped into the new Wendy's by the bridge for some free frostys.

Now we're looking "forward" to our first Nor'Easter of the year.  Sounds like some snow, rain and lots of wind are on their way!

 Our little family, all cuddled up and waiting for the fun to begin.

Now for some of our favourite sights from the parade:

 Gotta love a storm trooper in a Christmas parade.

 This was just funny to watch.
And Levi got so excited when he saw this minion coming down the road!
