Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade

Welcome back to reality of school / work / routine / the busy life before the holidays…..I hope everyone had a nice Thanksgiving. I had a great long weekend with my family and enjoyed every minute — so much to be thankful and grateful for. Although it was super low key and we didn’t do anything too out of the ordinary, each day we did something fun and exciting (more on that later). We were quite active, spent a lot of time outdoors, visited best friends, and had an overall great holiday. One of the highlights was the Macy’s Day Parade on Thanksgiving morning. We are good friends with the Macy’s Executive Chairman and so this time around, we were treated like true VIPs and celebrities (we had a detective escort us to our seats)! The one and only time that this will happen to us — and we loved every minute!

Thanksgiving Day Parade

Hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving!  We are in New York for the whole weekend for the first time ever (traveling with two kids over the busiest weekend of the year?  No, thank you.)  Thanks to my sister who works at Macy’s, we got tickets to the Thanksgiving Day Parade.  Fun family adventure, and everyone (especially Cruzzie) had a blast.  Enjoy the pics!

The parade route down Central Park West. Beautiful day!
