Yesterday, for the 3rd year in a row, I marched in the La Jolla Holiday Parade.  My daughter's Girl Scout troop marches every year and I am one of the co-leaders of the troop.  So even though Christmas isn't really my jam I commit to showing up each year for the girls.  Luckily my daughter has enough Christmas spirit for the both of us.  So I threw on some red clothes, she put a Santa hat on my head and we were off.  This year our troop was behind the Padres....I was impressed with there inflatable balls.  My two favorite parts are always the Chinese dragons (they must get so hot in there) and when the old planes do flyovers.  Another year in the books........
