Raleigh Christmas parade

 We ventured out early on a Saturday morning on a hunt for a good spot to watch the Raleigh Christmas parade. It was well worth the early rise and rush out the door. Here's a taste of what we enjoyed!

trains go with us many places these days...

love the marching bands!

Scotty McCreery from American Idol. A girl that sat next to us is a HUGE fan of his. She took off running down the street and followed his float the rest of the parade!

Hayden made a new friend!

the crowds across the street, kind of crazy!

Mr. Nutcracker had to go horizontal through the street we were on due to trees, made for a good laugh!

world's largest toilet??
the sirens are too loud for Hayden
