Winter Carnival

Since the weather was so beautiful on Saturday, we decided to go to the Torchlight Parade in downtown St. Paul for the close of the Winter Carnival. We left at 4:30 to drop off Gianna with Bamma...we figured it would be easier for her and us!
After we dropped off the little one, we walked to Cossetta's for dinner....however we weren't the only people with that idea. Gemma and I stayed in the pizza line while Spencer and David went to the hot food line. That was a mistake. In the time it took for Gemma and I to wait for pizza (about 10 minutes), find a place to sit, eat our pizza slowly and use the restroom - David and Spencer were just getting their food! Fortunately, they didn't breath while eating and were were out of there quickly.

Gemma is enjoying her big, greasy slice of cheese pizza.

We walked back to the parade and arrived just in time for it to start. (David is carrying Spencer's left-overs!)

Here are David and the kids...we were right in front! The parade was your typical parade - we saw the police cars and fire engines...and every towns royalty within a 100 mile radius. It didn't matter though - we were having a great time just being together. I wished Gianna could have been with us, but I think at 16 months old, she had more fun at Bamma's house.

Spencer took this photo...not the greatest angle, but it's nice to have a photo of the two of us together!
