Christmas Parade 2013

Oh my gosh it was so cold!!

It was raining and cold!!

I am getting a chill just thinking about it!!

BRRRRRR!!!

He did it though! Yes he did! Michael Jr was in the Upland Christmas Parade with his unit and they were on television!!!

Whoo hoo!!

Look how sharp he looked!!

034In his dress blues and looking sharp!!

The rain was freezing and just kept coming down. About 1/4 of the parade gave up and left before it even started.

The sea cadets were not scared of a little water though!!!

036They went out there and lined up anyway.

042They were granted the use of dark colored umbrellas thank goodness!!

All of us parents were scurrying around finding umbrellas for the cadets.

They had never marched with umbrellas and it took a little getting used to, trying to share them and not hit each other with them. They pulled it off though!!

051Yes those are blue and white umbrellas…it really started to pour and I think the Lt.sĀ  would rather have had some bright umbrellas than some angry mommas!! Ha ha ha!!

The cadets were a few behind our school float actually!

055 056Those poor girls got really wet!

As the parade was ending, because the cadets were the 3rd from the last of the parade, the rain stopped.

060The cadets looked awesome out there!

I am so proud of my young man!!

Still cold thinking about this!!Ā  Time for more coffee!!
