Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade



We spent Thanksgiving in NJ with my parents and were able to carry on my childhood tradition of going to the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade in NYC. The weather was absolutely amazing. One of the warmest years I can ever remember. We went every year growing up to this parade and it has been fun to be able to return again with Kylee and Skylar. The balloons tend to change a little from year to year but there has always been... the same crowd excitement, my family sitting in the same spot, beginning our wait with Dunkin Dounuts, clowns throwing confetti, us hoping the bands are playing in front of us, trying to get on TV or in the newspaper and Santa finishing the parade off. I have so many memories from this fun tradition and still even had my Dad driving the family in. I've enjoyed going down memory lane and sharing it with my family minus Alexis. (We did leave Lexi home with a friend in fear of any weather and the crowds). We had a great time and tried to capture a little bit of the parade in this video clip.

That was a great slide show. What a wonderful tradition. I love the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade and hope to see it live someday. Maybe we will have to go with you one year since you have gone so often I'm sure you know a lot of tips and tricks. It looks like you had a great time!

Love the blog! I'm so glad to be able to see some pictures of your family and see how you've been. Your girls are darling! And little Alexis is getting so big! i'm so jealous that you get to go to the parade every year. That is my dream to go to some day. Will you be in Utah at all over the holidays??? I would love to meet you all since I think I'm the last in my family to do so.
