We started the evening with a stop at our favorite ice cream shop! We got peanut butter for Kris, lime for Kieran, "Blue Sky" (Italian vanilla) for Elyse, and yellow plum for me! What yummy flavors!
As soon as the thunder started, people appeared out of nowhere selling plastic rain ponchos. Thankfully, the rain held off for the parade!
The top candied apples were covered in chili powder (like everything else here) and the bottom ones were a sticky, gooey mess!
And the parade begins!
