Week 9 recap - Rose Parade Floats Viewing

Today was the last day of the Christmas break for my I sad....the truth no really! I know bad mommy...! Listen I have 2 boys and they are almost 5 and 6 1/2.  After 2 weeks together well they FIGHT about EVERYTHING and so this mommy has had it big time.!

For our last day we headed to Pasadena to see the floats from the Rose Parade. It was amazing!  All of them were real piece of art.  The work that goes into building these is unbelievable and the TV does not do justice to any of these floats!
Here are a few pictures from our visit.

Are you old enough to know this guy?

This was amazing remember all these are made with flowers or seeds
