Posts Tagged ‘the way we live now’

I believe my family has been doing this for four years already, one year is documented on City Mitten already and this year’s is being documented now. The night before Thanksgiving all the floats for the Detroit Thanksgiving Day Parade are lined up on Woodward Avenue in downtown Detroit ready to go. They block off the streets to cars but smart people like ourselves are free to park around the corner late at night and go for a stroll and say hi to all the floats from last year as well as the new floats added as well.

Above is my sister Emily and I. It got really cold for some reason this year and we were not wearing gloves so I think we are lucky to still be in possession of all of our fingers. All for the sake of the floats. And the photos, of course.

This is a new thing. The caterpillar is there every year but usually he is reading a hardcover book. This year – not so. A laptop! Times are changing! He still hasn’t gotten Lasik eye surgery yet though…

And here’s another new float! This one promoting recycling. As you can see, Emily is a big help. Nice work, Emily – let’s keep our environment clean!

I hope you had a lovely Thanksgiving. I got back to New York yesterday and have plenty of things to post about from my trip to Michigan. Stay tuned!
