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!

In the stands. Kids snuggling. Is that a mullet? May be time for a haircut, Mr. C.

Getting psyched!

Kung Fu panda. The balloons were awesome, but some kids in the stands were kind of scared. I can see that.

Gigantic Kermit

Ronald McDonald with a massive head wound. (Sad face.)

What says Thanksgiving more then Carly Rae Jepsen? (Oh wait, she's Canadian?)

What says Thanksgiving more than The Wanted? (Oh wait, they're British?)

Separated at birth. The Pillsbury Doughboy and Baby Zoe!

Cruzzie's favorite, Buzz Lightyear

This was our first time going to the parade, and it was a blast.  Great family tradition with the kids that we definitely plan to do whenever we are in New York for Thanksgiving in the future.

Enjoy the rest of the weekend and happy shopping. Remember, you can get 20% off any orders over $250 on,, or with the promotion code HOLIDAY20 through Monday!

  1. ha ha Ronald McDonald!! I wonder what happened. I watched the parade on TV, and it looked fantastic.

  2. I love the pictures. I have never been to New York for Thanksgiving, but I want to go see the parade some time. Fun!

  3. Love your hat…and seeing a peak of your gorg hair in the first picture. Happy T-giving, Natoris.

  4. The parade looks great, and it was a beautiful day. I like the pony tail under the winter hat.

    The baby does look like Pillsbury boy.

    I would love to come and see the Thanksgiving parade–especially with the sun.
