2011 Bakersfield Christmas Parade

our friends the nilsson's were looking for people to ride in their bus and wave at people in the parade this year. i've never been in a parade and not sure i'll get the chance to again, so i signed us right up!

they own a white water rafting company here in town.

this is the bus they use to transport the rafters. it was all decked out with fake snow, icicles, lights, a christmas tree on top and a reindeer head ornament hood. the bus was pulling a trailer that had some rafts on it that the guides rode in.

here's our crew... the handys of course :)
we were told to wear elf hats if we had any. so i "whipped" this up in about 3 hours for nathan to wear.
nathan and his bestie adam jumping on the seats.
nathan enjoyed waving to the crowd and saying, "merry crispy". half way through the route, he was finished and just sat down. lol.
