St. Patrick's Day is a big deal here in Savannah. We joined in some of the festivities this year and had a great time. The parade was alot of fun but we were worn out at the end.
People sleep in their cars and head out to the squares at 6am to set up their areas. Its like a giant tailgate party for the parade.
James and Ada waiting for the parade to start. We got to the church at 9am to get a spot. The church is almost at the end of the parade route so even though the parade started at 10:15 we didn't see the start until 11:30. We filled the time with a lovely picnic brunch and people watching. And there were plenty of people to watch!
Ada passed the time by walking up and down the sidewalk with her stroller. She isn't walking on her own yet but as long as she has something to push she's on the move!
After almost 5 hours Ada couldn't take it any longer and just collapsed in exhaustion while her Papa held her. We went home and all took a 2 hour nap! I didn't know watching a parade could be such a tiring experience. We had a great time and can now say we have watched the second largest St. Patrick's Day Parade in America!
