I also went on a Cruise the fall of 2017. I love the water. We were blessed to have a mini suit. Lawrence asked if I wanted to share it with him. Of course I did. It went from Vancouver BC Canada to Long Beach, CA. The food, entertainment and people were fabulous. I loved every minute of it. 

January 2018 I became a Grandma!

Meridian's Winter Lights Parade

Braving the cold weather, I made it down to the Meridian Idaho Winter Wonderland Lights Parade. 

The parade and where the tree lighting is held on Idaho and Main in Meridian. There were a lot of people there watching The Grinch animated cartoon on the side of a building. There was also a stage for the local TV Station on the right with lighted trees. They served free hot coco to keep everyone warm.  
 Meridian still has a small town feel and has many great activities for families. 

We were all bundled up to keep us warm because it was a crisp cold night to watch the parade.

I decided I would walk the path instead of trying to stay warm in a chair - it was a great idea!
 What a sight to behold all the beautifully lit floats. 
 Here is the Idaho Potato that they drop from a crane in downtown Boise on New Year's eve. An new Idaho tradition. 

 A human nativity - sorry it's blurry. 
 The Winter land Lights Parade is my favorite! 
 I love all the lights and Christmas music through the air as the floats go by. 

 It really starts the Christmas spirit to bloom inside your heart. In the back ground is the Meridian city building. 

 The mobile Library bus - sharing the gift of reading all around Meridian.

 A Christmas boat in the mix of all the cars. 

Oh, I'm so excited ... look who is coming? 
 It's Santa Claus!!
After Santa made it to the end of the parade at Idaho and Main, they light the Christmas tree.
 And BOOM, fireworks lit the sky! 
I loved attending and I love our small town. Let the Christmas season begin!
