Well a toast to another fun week of winter 🙂
We had a good time at the Welcome Back Party in Algodones, lot’s of free drinks and food and some good entertainment.
Lot’s of dental and optical shops give away free t-shirts and other trinkets, along with free drinks, so I was able to restock our pen collection which was getting low. I would rather restock with free pens rather than going to the store and buying some 😀 We didn’t stay too long and had less than an hour wait to cross back into the US.
After a couple of hours at home doing some chores we joined friends for the Electric Light Parade in Downtown Yuma.
This years theme was Neon 80’s and there were many floats with rubik’s cubes on them but I liked this one the best.
Over 40,000 people attend the parade every year and we always arrive two hours early to get our favourite spots along the corner of the Giss and Main Street. This location allows us to see the floats coming down Giss and making the turn onto Main Street.
This is a fun way to get into the festive mood without having to sit in the cold and snow watching a Christmas parade.
I loved the job Coke did on decorating their trucks!
And of course I show this float every year because the amount of lights are amazing!! Hubby counted at least a dozen generators tucked in the back running all the lights.
Being a farming area of course you need some tractors in the parade and this one did a good job.
And what is a Christmas parade without a Christmas tree 😀
Sunday night we had a large group over for a chili dinner and the golf cart parade. There was some confusion with the organization of the parade and we thought they were not going to come down our street but we made enough noise and they eventually came by.
This week hubby is working at the Wood Shop and I’m helping a friend with a few craft fairs.
We have another week before we head home for Christmas and it is shaping up to be a busy time … yes life in the desert is good.
Until next time …
