sunday dawned bright and early. and i totally slept through it! haha.. i stayed home from church because i'm a germaphobe, but i could have sworn i heard mark walking around upstairs when i woke up. nope. we have a easter ghost, apparently. (5/30/13 note: omg, it must have been jesus!)
come with me now on a photographical journey of my easter.
got some "torchwood" in while i made up and waited for mark.
when he got home, we went to pick up some arby's. thems my big feet.
i like to watch the chickens roast.
we got back home and i proceeded to prepare my salad for consumption. i dropped my (thankfully closed) side of dressing and mark told me that i'm not an accident waiting to happen, i'm an accident that does happen. (i'm very accident-prone.)
and then this happened. mark asked me to turn up the t.v. (we don't have a remote) and when i went to sit back down my skirt caught my salad bowl. i cried crocodile tears like spilt milk and mark jumped up to go get me another salad. whatta boy :)
salad take 2.
we headed down to "easter on parade" on monument ave. got a great parking spot in front of this pretty church.
we specifically wanted to see the pet easter bonnet contest. this is the pre-band. look at us, celebrating easter right next to the robert e. lee statue. go, confederacy.
that would be me.
and you know him.
i don't have any photos of the contest dogs because we were too far away. this is just a big dog.
donkey at the petting "zoo" (which was like, a 15x15 fenced area). right after i took this, this little girl came up with a handful of hay and threw it at the donkey's head. the mom, leading the daughter away said, "what a good job, honey! the donkey's going to love to eat that!" way to congratulate your kid for doing a subpar job. we can do anything!!
the crowd. there's a big gap there, which was unusual. both sides of the street were pretty much filled for blocks.
random flamingo-headed dude.
i'm not gonna lie, i love these puppets. they are pretty much my favorite thing about the parade, excepting all the dogs. i had a video, but since all i aimed at was the curtain, it's worthless. the puppets sing "we are family" and "celebration" and more.
