It Didn't Rain On My Parade!!!!

Today I marched in my very first parde with the Marching Ravens!!! It was Baltimore's annual St. Patrick's Day Parade!

This parade is a big deal here in Charm City. There were tons of people. The cheering of the crowds was overwhelming at times. I've never experienced anything like this before. It was AWESOME!!!!

I had a great time. I was afraid that I wouldn't be able to make it through the whole two mile parade route. I should have had more faith in myself. I made it with energy left over. Maybe it was the adrenline rush I had going but I did it and I loved it!! I'm tired and achy now but it was soooo worth it!!!

I really do love being a member of the Marching Ravens! I'm looking forward to our next event. We have three parades on July 4th!! That's right - a grueling three parades! I can't wait though! I'm told it's a ton of fun!!!

So - in closing - Happy St Patrick's Day!! May the luck o' the Irish be with you!
