Ella’s first pride parade

Today was the Pride parade. The three of us met up with Phyllis, Richard and Alice at the parade. We sat in the grandstand and got to see the whole parade go by. It was really festive and historic. There were many couples in the parade who were just married in the past few weeks and the overall feel of the parade was incredibly celebratory. We stayed for almost 4 hours and Ella was amazing. She was clapping and yelling out – she loved the balloons the most. Tonight, Helen, Ron, Stella and Juliet came home from Barbados. Ella saw them and squealed. I think Ron got some sweet pictures of the reunion.

Here we are looking at something – maybe the balloons.

Here is Ella hanging out with Alice and Phyllis. Alice is the greatest. At one point during the parade she turned to me and said, “If I hadn’t seen this I wouldn’t have believed it!”
