Weekend to Texas--Cold trip coming and going!!

This weekend in Lewisville, Texas, there was a big Christmas Parade, which granddaughter, Paige participated in as a Brownie and also a huge Motorycycle Toy Run.  So we decided to ride our new Trike down there for the weekend and do the run also. 

Now the Saturday forecast was great, it was just getting down there and and back that would be a little chilly.  We left for the four hour ride and it was around 40 degrees.  On the back of a motorcycle that is pretty cool and I do not mean "cool" as in neat, I mean cool as in chilly!  Of course, when you are prepared, it's not so bad and we were dressed for it.  On the way back it was 39 degrees when we got home.  It took us a while to get warm again. 

Saturday was perfect for the parade and the run!  Jake, our grandson, wanted to ride the cycle with Papa, so away they went. 

The toy run started 30 minutes before the parade, winding through the city and back to lead the parade.  There were hundreds of cycles there and they donated all these toys!

Cycles were lined up on both sides of the street for several blocks.  Pretty noisy when they all fired up their engines!  :)

Then Paige and Mom showed up with their reindeer antlers and noses!  Pretty cute if I do say so.

We had a good time, got some Christmas shopping done, and ate at a few new places!

Paige and I made some cute Christmas plates but I'll tell you all about that tomorrow after I've completely thawed!
