HAPPY 3rd BIRTHDAY to Lauren!

Every year past, Aric and I would spend New Year's Day sleeping in and watching the Rose Parade. This year we had a chance to see Pasadena's Tournament of Roses Parade live! My father-in-law got us kickass tickets...third row seats on Colorado Avenue! AND we didn't have to camp out like tons of other people.

But because Aric and I didn't get to bed until 4am, and had to be up an hour later....the day was extremely brutal. We parked about 5 or 6 long blocks way from the parade route, and walked in the freezing cold (41 degrees). Most of the morning was that cold, and I think it started to warm up after the parade was over. The parade was amazing. But toward the last few floats, I was ready to leave. My poor butt felt as though it froze and permanently stuck to the bleacher seats. =( I don't enjoy cold weather at all. I rather be hot than cold.

We ate lunch in Artesia with my father-in-law and Netty. Aric, Ashlyn, and I were pretty out of it most of the day. Once we got home, we spent the rest of the day napping. Wey came over for a late dinner and hung out for a bit.

I'm still working on uploading my December trip journals. Sorry it's taking so long....it's been pretty hectic around here. =/

*YAWN!* I'm still tired and my lower back is bothering me. Going to bed early. G'nite!
