1. Look your best.
PS Funny story. While waiting for the parade to begin, we sent Mr. C back to my sister's car for a grocery bag to hold all the candy. She gave him the key and told him where the bag was. He returned shortly saying that a) her car wasn't locked and b) there was no sign of a grocery bag. My baffled sister said she would go back with him. As they walked, he chatted about how she needed to get her key fixed because it didn't work and maybe take it to the dealer and on and on. Come to find out, he had gotten into the wrong (unlocked) car! But it had a car seat and toys on the ground so he thought he was in the right one. After good laughs and some sheepish grins, they realized why the key never worked.
I just cannot believe that after all these years of zilch in the way of parades...we have now gone to TWO in one year!
