Macy's Thanksgiving Parade

John and Tanya Gough (good friends in NYC).

Alton Brown from The Food Network.

Jimmy Fallon and his late night crew.

Spider-Man= Memphis' hero

Woke up at 2:30am. Left our house at 3:30am. Caught the 4am Ferry from Staten Island to Manhattan. Carried 10lbs of food, two camping chairs, 4 blankets, snow pants, camera, jackets, hats and lots of water all on a double stroller. Arrived at our viewing spot at 5:30am. We were up front and had the best seats in the house. We got McDonald's around 6:30am and took naps until the parade started at 9:30am. It was the coolest thing to be in front and to be so close to the balloons and floats. The kids loved it. I have to admit though that it was very loooooong like two hours long. We were all very happy to see Santa at the end which meant the parade was over!

How fun that you guys got to do that... even if you had to get up wicked early. That is on many people's bucket lists. You look great Patty!
