My sister lives on a main street in the neighborhood of Arbutus.  The town has a big parade each year and we usually go watch it.  It goes right down Laura’s street so this year she set up a tent and we all came to share in Alyssa’s first parade.  As a bit of a back story I hate parades that are not in WDW for the same reason as the fireworks…none ever live up!  Well every year my mom would get all decked out in her red white & blue and head to the parade.  Once I got old enough to stay home I stopped going.  My Mom and I would fight each year cause I didn’t want to go site in the July heat and watch a bunch of nothing.  This year I forced Pete into it (he hates parades too) so we could share in Alyssa’s first parade.  It wasn’t too hot and Laura had a sun shade and we sat in her front yard.  Alyssa LOVED the parade…LOVED IT!  She squealed and smiled and watched intensely.  It was cute.  Here are a few pictures and the rest are on Flickr.
