Big Balloon Parade
I bundled up the kids (should have checked the weather) and headed out the door early this morning to catch the big balloon parade downtown today. We took the trolley which was a little more challenging then I thought it would be due to transfers and no ramps with the stroller but there were plenty of nice people to help me along the way so it really wasn't too bad. We had a good time. Rowan wanted to run off a lot which was exhausting but typical for an active 21 month old. Their favorite part which I'm kicking myself for not getting a photo of, was a miniature like golf cart sized trash truck that drove down the street. I have to admit, I thought it was pretty cool myself! The fire trucks were a close runner up. Rowan seemed to really get into the marching bands and kept saying "drums" and then patting his arms on his legs. Oh, almost forgot to mention that it warmed up to the 70's so we were removing layers until Athena wound up topless. Only in San Diego. We also ran into a fellow mama blogger and another mama friend too which is strange since there were 1000's of people there I'm sure.
