Right before the plague descended on our house, we finally had the chance to go to Jacksonville's Chinese New Year parade! We've wanted to go for many years, but nap schedules often don't cooperate... thankfully, this year we made it! And it was totally worth the wait - SUCH a great parade!

The dragons freaked Cole out a bit at first - they were super cool - but once I explained they were puppets and we looked for the peoples' feet underneath, he was ok with them.
Parades are so great!
