Saturday morning I took the kids over to our outdoor mall to see a Dog Costume Parade. It was a perfect event for kids...no wait, over quickly, and highly entertaining. I think we were some of the only people there just watching the parade, there were lots and lots of participants and some super cute doggie costumes! We had about 5 minutes to kill while we waited for them to round the corner we were on and we browsed windows, did tricks and danced to pass the time.
As pretty much the only spectators we got lots of attention from the dogs. One lady even asked if she could take a picture of her dog with my kids :-).
After the finale car we went and walked around the booths a bit. Ella was excited when we saw these hound dogs who look like her favorite stuffed animal, Sniffer. (and how cute is that coat?! I got it for $13 at a resale shop...score!)
