I do have pictures from yesterday, though. We were in a parade! The Niles Festival of Lights Parade. So so so so fun. I don't have a bucket list but if I did I would now know that it should have "be in a parade" on the list. Enzo and I drove the decorated bug with a Christmas tree on top and a giant speaker on the back, Tami and Ana cruised along with portable lights and Traci's dance group danced in costume and lights to the music from the giant speaker. It was so very fun and exciting to be part of the parade. The bug got a lot of attention too; a lot. After the parade the bug was parked in a parking lot and plenty of people came over to take pictures of it and with it and to talk about it. I decided to drive all the way home with the lights on. Down the freeway, every few minutes I would see the flash from some one's cell phone camera taking a picture of the bug in lights as they drove along side of me.

(Storm troopers, too!)
(Those are the dancers that we will go down the parade with..behind them is a light saber fight in progress.)
(Almost our turn to enter the parade.)
(And we are off!)
Unfortunately I have no pictures of us being in the parade or the dancers behind us. But after the parade the vehicles and floats and horses went into a parking lot where people could enjoy them. That's when I got a few pics of the bug all lit up.
