Silver Bells

Every year Lansing has its Silver Bells in the City celebration. It includes a nighttime parade with lots of lights, plenty of hot chocolate vendors, and culminates in the lighting of the state tree with fireworks. We decided to brave the cold and go join in the festivities. We had a lot of fun walking around downtown and checking out some of the stores. We discovered a really nice fine art supply store and a comic book place that we didn't know about. The crowds got to be pretty crazy during the parade. Liam liked seeing the big draft horse pulling wagons and loved grooving to the marching bands. He also thought the lighted trucks were pretty neat, although he didn't like them honking their horns. We didn't stay to see the tree lighting because Liam was getting tired and a little too heavy for mommy and daddy to wear on their backs. But we sure had a fun time!
