Celebrate the Season Parade 2010

When I was young, we always attended the Thanksgiving weekend parade in downtown Pittsburgh.  We went with another family, always standing in the same place and having lunch afterward.  This year the route was different, due to construction, but it was just as fun, despite the chilliness (that I almost let keep us from going.)  I'm so glad we went!

All bundled up and ready to go!

Brian took it very seriously.

The wind made it hard to control the balloons.

These little Shriners trucks were so cute.

a quality Pittsburgh road

lovely old Pittsburgh building

Yay, a choo-choo!

Lunch at Max & Erma's next to this funny sign.
Thanks for lunch, mom!
