One of my earliest childhood memories is of going downtown for America’s Thanksgiving Day Parade. I remember the adults setting up ladders and laying a plank of wood over them so the kids could see over people’s heads. As an adult, I think that was an unnecessary amount of work but as a kid – with a grown-up to do the work for you – it was awesome. I haven’t been to the parade in years. The last time we went with Mom I remember nothing about the parade or downtown, I only recall being really cold, drinking hot chocolate and waiting in traffic. Granny goes to the parade every year and I think that’s awesome. Adam said our trip to the Parade Company inspired him to go with her this year and tell her the fun facts we learned. I hope they have a good time and next year I want to join them.
