Parade Day in Chicago

 Today is a big day in downtown Chicago! It's the annual St. Patrick's Day parade.  It steps off at noon and Mom and I will be watching from the warm, dry comfort of our recliner.  And would you believe after the parade, snow will be moving in.  

This morning the Chicago river will be died green.
 


Mom has never been to the parade in person.  Today they are expecting one million to go down and line up along the route.

  5. That's pretty cool, but we don't blame your Mom for not going in person. Hanging out with you is way better than with a million people.

  9. My human likes the idea of watching a parade from inside! Sounds way more comfortable.

  10. Your mom has the right idea watching in your warm house with the two of you and no crowds or lining up. I love the idea of the green river. That is so cool!

  11. I think your Mom is super smart to watch the parade from the comforts of her recliner...1 million people is a lot to be around for a parade!

  12. If there is snow on the way, watching from the comfort of home is the best idea.

  13. A number of years ago, the mom went to the parade with her friends that live in Chicago. When they wanted to leave, there wasn't an easy way out, so they climbed over the barracades, and walked in the parade (this was towards the end of it). They waved to all the people!

    Then they went to see the green river.

    These were the days when the mom was much more wild and crazy.
