Children's Rose Parade

Here are some pictures from the Children's Rose Parade last week. We decided that the big parade is too chaotic for little ones so we would take them to the children's parade instead. My parents brought Owen and my grandparents up from Corvallis and Mandy, her mom, and George met us there. We had enough grandparents with us that Mandy and I barely touched the kids, which I enjoy being free to chat and take pictures. It worked out perfect to have lunch at Laurelwood and then just head out right at parade time. I could not believe how mandy people were already sitting outside 3 hours before the parade even started. It was super fun, a little too hot near the end, but a new tradition I am sure.

Rory was serious about parade watching.

So Cute! Rory insists on holding Owen's hand and Owen is such a great sport.
