Macy's Day Parade for Thanksgiving

Hello friends! Hope you all had a great Thanksgiving (like 6 days ago)! I feel like i'm just getting my head on straight after our little trip we took to New York. A couple of our friends and us decided that since we live so close to New York we would take advantage of it and drive down to see the Macy's Day Parade for Thanksgiving. It was a blast to say the least. I probably wouldn't do it again with a 1 year old, but we are crazy like that and made the most of it in the freezing cold weather. 

The best part of the parade was that I had an awesome husband. no really. He woke up super early, and froze his little toosh off, to reserve a spot and got us right at the front of the gate. It couldn't have been better for Daxton because he was able to see everything in front of him.  

We sublet an apartment right in the heart of Manhattan. We were about a block away from the start of the parade and a train ride away from most attractions. It was a lot of fun being with all the crowds and with our friends. 

We honestly didn't get a lot of pictures but we did get some video. So maybe if I get some time to edit another video I will put it up. 

Anyway, enough chit chat. Hope you guys had a great holiday!
