It was raining, it was cold, it was gray. And it was the Langley Christmas parade. So of course I went! I was able to talk Wesley and Piper into coming with me, but Kyla and Aubrey stayed behind in the cozy cabin. They missed out!
I love the exterior (and interior, if I’m to be honest) of the Saratoga Inn.
It was a small parade—girl scouts, marital arts, and a pony.
Piper grabbed her Santa hat and American flag, but is probably still kicking herself for not having more and deeper pockets. Again, for all the candy.
But Santa showed up, and if I say it was on the back of the ambulance, don’t feel worried about his health. Those aren’t real raindeer and they needed the help.
Next to Santa, and lots and lots of candy, I loved the bagpipes the best. I actually loved seeing our friends down at the parade best, but the bagpipes were amazing.
And to top off the parade, the rain ended and a rainbow appeared.
See, it’s always better on the island.
