It took Gwen some time to warm up to the parade. for about the first hour and a half she just acted like a teenager "Why did we have to wake up for this again?!" Wouldn't smile at all.
Jonas was waving the flag the whole time, for like three hours. Pretty cute.

Gwen thought everyone was waving at her. She would say "hi!" in a cute matter of fact way to everyone that passed.

Was pretty fun to see him. the kids got really excited. Okay... we all did. Totally worth the wait, and the sun, and the crowds. :)
