Muppet Takes Manhattan (Part I)

Alexis' Dad's wish for his 60th birthday was to take his two grandsons to the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade, an event he shared many times with his own children before their family moved away from New York. We were more than happy to help that wish come true.

The happy Grandpa

Don't worry, Snoopy's not missing, he's floating about 100 feet above

Don't even try to tell him that he's using his "noculars" backwards

The pride of Leland, Miss. approaches

To infinity...

Not everyone enjoyed a perfect view

Looks like y'all had a great time. The year I was in town for the parade was rainy and super cold, so I stayed bundled up in Princeton.

Loved the last picture. I can see how it's a common problem; seems like an opportunity to invent something to prevent shoulder-riding induced sight impairment. Some barrier to keep hands above eyes. Wait, how's about a baseball cap?!
