Small Child and I had the pleasure of attending the Christmas parade in lovely Ft. Pierce, FL this past weekend. It was filled with everything you'd expect in a small town parade - Shriners, the 4-H club, dance teams. And then a few things you might not expect.
Here's McGruff the crime dog.
And then on the back of the McGruff float...the crime manatee?
Following that float (boat?) we have...um...McGruff. Again. This one wasn't lucky enough to ride on a float.
Next, we have Rudolph the 4-H horse.
And a bunch of little tiny painted horses. Seriously, there were like a hundred of them. But aren't they cute?
Small Child with his glow bracelet on one hand and a silly band shaped like a bank on the other. He loves those things.
And the real Santa
And what Christmas parade would be complete without loot? Candy canes, life savers, and oranges.
