Rose Bowl parade and game

January 1, 2016 – a beautiful morning in Pasadena, California!

This was my second time at the parade, and my first time at the game. We attended the parade January 1, 1977. My older brother – 15 at the time – spent all night holding our front row spot along the parade route. I didn’t have front row seats this time but I was able to get fairly close at the last minute.

Butterflies

I tried using my finger to block the rapidly rising sun, but quickly had to give up taking pictures.

Mary Poppins, Elsa… and more Disney beauties


And now to the game, that my team lost. Badly.

Maybe I need to edit that guy out of my pic?


  

The blimp…again. Is he following me?
