The Rose Parade

May 31, 2008

Tonight was the Rose Parade in Portland. This is a huge parade (which is currently going on outside my window (at 10:10pm). We grabbed dinner at the Deschuetes Pub, and then headed over to S.W Park to catch the warm up of the parade.
As the even got underway, we realized that we were about a block too far West, and decided to migrate East a bit so that we wouldn’t miss all the marching bands.
The marching bands were especially important because just yesterday Ruby was telling us that she wanted one… at her birthday party. Staying up until 10pm and watching them out on the street seemed to be an acceptable consolation for her (thank goodness).
Unfortunately, Miles doesn’t deal well with over stimulation and sleep deprivation, so its looking like another long bedtime for him and Vick.

    The parade ended at 11pm, and right behind the last float was an armada of street sweepers, and garbage trucks. It was totally amazing.

    The only thing better then beer, is free beer!
    Portland is a true beer-lovers town. Glad it’s going well!
