Yes, we are back online! HALLELUJAH! I don't know how Clark did it, but he did.
Corinne was doing okay despite the intense sun and heat and loud car horns. She does like to people watch, though, so she was entertained.
We spent the rest of the morning at my grandparents' house with my sister and her kids. I made the decision to not get out for fireworks that night. There was a high probability that Andrew and Corinne would have been scared by them (due to the crying and ear covering from the firetruck at the parade), so we just stayed home and had a normal night.
It really was a fun day because the parade was a new experience for Andrew and Corinne. It's always fun to see them have a new experience and take in every detail with awe and excitement.
Plus, candy being thrown at you is priceless.
