Santa Claus Parade

Tonight I went to my first Santa Claus Parade.  I don’t usually do well with loud noises, they make me cry, but tonight I was really good at tolerating them and only cried a few times.  I was mostly irritated that bigger kids were standing in front of me and blocking my view!  Mommy said live and learn and next year we will be much more aggressive with our space and bring out the chairs and set them up right at the edge of the curb.  We could only get my stroller to the edge and it is very narrow in the front and kids were standing beside me so I saw a lot of bum hehehe.  Daddy saved me and picked me up and I was happier, he’s 6’4” so it’s handy to have a tall Daddy in these instances.  I kept on going back and forth from Mommy and Daddy but overall I had a great time at the parade.  As expected the pictures didn’t turn out that great.  Most of them are orange hued and Mommy knows if she had of played with the white balance on her camera she probably could have eliminated that but she hasn’t touched that setting very much and didn’t want to try to figure it out.  She only edited 1 picture of tonight so please excuse the orange lol!  It didn’t help that the street lights were orange too.  Here are some pics from tonight.

You looked so pretty! How exciting it must be to have seen Santa already! Did you tell him what a good girl you've been?

It really is this time of year already.... Ugh... in a few days the Christmas Tree will be up! This year went by so fast... seriously... I don't even think I had time to breathe!

I think you did a great job capturing the night time lights. They are so hard to capture with out them being blurry! But yours turned out fabulous! What were your settings? Haven't done much night time photography
