We had so much fun today but my feet are KILLING me.
We were invited to be on the Autism Speaks float in the NYC Columbus Day Parade.
Of course I jumped at the invitation!
We got there at about 11:00am and at about 1:00 we finally got moving.
I've attended lots of 5th Avenue parades but to be on a float on the other side of the barricade was truly thrilling. My cheeks hurt from smiling so damn much I think I've perfected my princess wave.
It took us almost 3 hours to go a mile because the parade had to keep stopping due to crosstown traffic.
By the time we were done I'd been on my feet standing for about 5 hours and the kiddos were exhausted and hungry and tired.
What a cool experience though. I hope I get to do it again but I can cross it off my bucket list now!
