New holiday tradition

Every Christmas the city of Denver holds the Denver Parade of Lights downtown. So last month we decided to bundle everybody up and go to the parade.

We live super close to a light rail station, so we opted to take the train downtown so we wouldn't have to worry about parking. I know, how very urban of us. :)

It was about 40 degrees, so not TOO cold, and the kids had a blast. We got some good seats along the route and the highlight was, of course, seeing Santa at the end.

Okay I take that back. I think the highlight for the kids was riding the train. :) This will definitely be a yearly tradition for us!

Your kids are looking cuter everytime I see them here. Sounds like a fun time and a good tradition to have. Good to see you here.

We haved lived in Denver for 15 years and have NEVER gone to the Parade of Lights. It's usually SOOOOOO cold ~ this year we were out of town. I am glad you had a good time...I hear it's fun. :o)

Yes, we also love public transportation with the kiddoes. They get such a blast out of it, and there's something relaxing about just sitting there waiting for your stop!
