Baylor Homecoming Parade

Madison and I got up early this morning to go to the Baylor Parade. It is the largest collegiate parade in the nation. We met up with Samantha and Brandon, who had snagged us a really great place where we could just sit on the tailgate of his truck and see everything. We had donuts, kolaches, chocolate milk, and of course, coffee while we were waiting. And the people on the floats were throwing candy to the kids along the parade route. Madison will begin to think that everywhere we go people will be giving out candy!!!

The kids work really hard on the floats.
This is the REAL Baylor Bear. I think at this point Madison decided to visit Samantha, who was sitting in the back of the truck, well away from the street where the bear was.
Here is that pesky Baylor Bear from the football game......
This balloon was great!!
Another cute float.......
They were handing out Dr. Pepper floats and Madison really enjoyed hers. Waco is the home of Dr. Pepper. We have the Dr. Pepper Museum and they are also sponsors of Baylor athletics.

Madison had a great time today.

We came home for an early, quick nap for Madison and then it will be off to the game at 2:00 PM. The weather is beautiful. Hopefully we will meet up with Greg, who is working at the game again today.
