This was actually Gabbie's second year going. She had a lot of fun eating, playing, and watching the balloons. She was really so good. We stayed in one spot with chairs and a blanket and she played right on the blanket the whole time. I was nervous she would try to wander off, especially when we got there and the first announcement I heard was to look for a 3 year old boy who was lost! But surprisingly enough Gabbie was great and we had a really good time.
Now for pictures. The first two are from last year.
She had only been walking a few weeks when this was taken last year.
This year! I am amazed by the change. She is still my same baby girl but she is growing up.
She was so intense at times watching the balloons.

On daddy's shoulders watching the balloons.
Here is the bunny balloon which is Gabbie's favorite of course. Unfortunately this year it didn't fly. But they did inflate it so all of the kids got to see it.
Gabbie had such a good time. We left the house at 1 and didn't get home until 7:30. She was so good until after waiting in traffic for about 20 minutes when she decided she wanted to get out of her car seat and she wiggled her arms out. Daddy got in the back with her and buckled her in. We then promised McD's and she got better. Once she got her fries and milk she was just fine!
